There are many ways people will be able to get involved in the 2025 Beach Volleyball World Championships. We are currently seeking expressions of interest for our Working Groups as well as building our Volunteer and Workforce database. 

Interested people will be able to submit their interest through an online form (acailable on the get involved page) to help build our database of people wanting to be involved. Once the volunteer and workforce positions have been fully defined, we will then reach out to those interested parties to get them engaged (estimated to be around November 2024).

Keep an eye out on the ‘get involved’ page for more information.
