Brisk development in beach volleyball


15 Jan 2011
The development of beach volleyball may have turned a corner in 2010 after an investment of close to $4 million (£2.5 million), according to one of the FIVB's leading executives. Vicente Araujo, executive vice president and development commission president, said: “The development programme in 2010 has been incredibly successful in terms of providing more growth in the sport of beach volleyball and volleyball around the world.

“There has been more investment both financially and with resources, so 2010 has the potential to be the year when FIVB development turned a corner and set the trend for outstanding development achievement.”

The FIVB invested more in development than in any other year in its history, allocating financial resources to the continental confederations to help national federations.

A new development fund, controlled by the FIVB, was launched in close collaboration with the IOC’s Olympic Solidarity programme. This new fund gives all FIVB national federations the opportunity to propose projects for funding through their National Olympic Committees.

The steering committee responsible for evaluating national federation proposals evaluated a total of 80 applications at its two-day meeting in December while also announcing that a total of $3.7m (£2.3 million) would be available to confederations and federations when it comes to budgeting such proposals.

The recently completed Asian Beach Games in Muscat was another prime example of the growth of beach volleyball where 22 of the 45 OCA members took part in the competition involving 32 men's and 20 women's teams - the largest participation in all sports at the Games.
