The Netherlands scene of an unprecedented sporting event
2018 CEV DELA Beach Volleyball European Championship

Luxembourg, July 13, 2018. The Netherlands are about to host something truly unprecedented in Volleyball history – i.e. as many as three international competitions at the same time, thus involving eight cities – plus Kortrijk in Belgium. The 2018 CEV DELA Beach Volleyball European Championship will start on Sunday, July 15 only one day after completion of the first competition day of the 2018 CEV U20 Volleyball European Championship – Men. On top of this, the Netherlands are playing host to the World ParaVolley Championships as well.

The 2018 #EuroBeachVolley will take place in four cities – The Hague, Apeldoorn, Rotterdam and Utrecht. On Sunday night, starting at 19.45, home stars Dirk Boehlé and Steven van de Velde will open the programme of the tournament when playing Marco Caminati and Enrico Rossi of Italy shortly after the official Opening Ceremony of the Beach Volleyball party of the year.  

The opening act at Marktplein in Apeldoorn (pictured above), the Volleyball capital of the Netherlands, will feature former Volleyball star, 1996 Olympic champion Bas van de Goor and Tournament Director, three-time Beach Volleyball European champion Reinder Nummerdor. CEV Vice President Maris Pekalis and the President of the Dutch Volleyball Federation (Nevobo), Peter Sprenger will attend as well.

The Opening Ceremony will commence at 18.30. Live streaming of the matchup between Boehlé/Van de Velde and Caminati/Rossi will be available on the CEV’s YouTube channel and Facebook Beach Volleyball page. Caminati/Rossi recently won silver at the Mediterranean Games in Tarragona, Spain while Boehlé/Van de Velde have a third and fifth place from the 1-Star and 3-Star events held earlier this year in Aalsmeer and Lucerne to their name.
