Thank you Volleyfest




full shot



From March 18-28th Manly Beach was transformed into a Beach Volleyball Paradise! First up was the Australia Beach Tour Finals, then the 4 Nations Cup and the culminating event over the Easter weekend, the Asian Championships. These three events were a great sucess and set a new standard for Beach Volleyball events in Australia. In order to run such a large event, Volleyball Australia and State Volleyball NSW relied on the help and support of Volunteers; beach and indoor players, referees, events managment students, and super-fans! . We are absolutely humbled and amazingly proud of the amount of people who showed up for Volleyball and generously gave up their time over the Easter weekend.
