Volleyball fans and beach lovers alike are in for a treat as this year’s VolleyFest takes place in Manly, NSW, on the doorstep of the beautiful Northern Beaches campus of International College of Management, Sydney (ICMS).
Olympic gold medallist Kerri Pottharst OAM will be just one of the stars in action on the beach, as well as Volleyroos players such as Chris McHugh and Damien Schuman. It will be aces, serves and digs from 18 – 26 November during what is billed as the premier event on the Australian Beach Volleyball Calendar.
ICMS is a major sponsor of Volleyball Australia, we also sponsor with the Australian Open of Surfing, Manly Marlin Rugby and others. Sponsoring such events is a way of keeping pace with the sports industry in which many ICMS students end up working, as the college offers an in depth Bachelor of Sports Management degree.
ICMS students are encouraged to get down to the beach and watch the action unfold with three major categories of volleyball making up VolleyFest.
18-19 November: Australian Beach Volleyball Tour Round 1. This is a multi-division event open to many levels of participants. The highest division will be an Australian Team Commonwealth Games Selection event.
20-21 November: NSW Beach Volleyball Schools Cup.
22-26 November: FIVB World Tour 2 Star Event Men’s Competition and Women’s Competition.
VolleyFest started as a local and national competition and has now become a major international event with its inclusion into the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour. Athletes can go from here all the way to the 2018 Commonwealth Games that will take place on the Gold Coast in April next year.
Get your sunscreen sorted and book your spot along the beach to catch Australia’s best beach volleyball stars in action at this year’s VolleyFest.
