2009/10 Australian Beach Volleyball Series
Volleyball Australia is working closely with our member state associations and their beach tour operators to deliver what will now be known as the Australian Beach Series, comprised of five State Open events and culminating in the National Beach Championships. This has replaced what many would know as the National Beach Tour. We are still working diligently to attract sponsorship dollars to assist in supporting each of these events as well as the National Championships.

The Australian Beach Series will be a mainstay for future summer beach seasons. Volleyball Australia continues to make efforts to build a ‘Pro Tour’ featuring a limited entry of Australia’s best beach volleyball players which will be used to highlight and promote the sport to the public through the use of television. We are not ready to announce this tour for 2010 but we are hopeful for 2011.
