SIDE EVENTS

Since its beginnings, Beach Volleyball has gone hand in hand with music, fun in the stands and an atmosphere that relaxes both players and fans. The tournament in Ljubljana will be no exception to this. Attractive dance performances, good music and many fun games for visitors powered by our sponsors will definitely spice up the event. As the beach also requires water adventures, they will be set up courtside and will entertain mostly our youngest visitors.

BEACH IN THE CITY CENTRE!

To organise a tournament right in the city centre and transform it into a beautiful Volleyball event is an exceptional opportunity. Our slogan “Beach in the City Centre” comes from simple reasons and points out that you can experience the summer pulse in the city centre and have a great time, especially with the scenery provided by Beach Volleyball.
