Beach Volley

Contact person: Monica Ermolli

Single tournament 4×4 (during the matches there must be at least one woman in the field and at least one man).

Location: Palainsubria (Varese University, Bizzozzero,Varese)

Proposal for the organization of the beach volley games

For the 4×4 tournament,

the xx teams will be organised in x groups a x teams. Each team plays 1 match (best of three sets) with each other team within the group. 8 teams go to the finals, i.e. the first 2 teams per group + the 2 best third teams. The tournament will proceed with direct elimination (best of three sets).



Saturday afternoon: 4 x 4 group phase

Sunday morning: quarter-finals, semi-finals, and final 4 x 4 tournament

(small changes of the schedule are possible, of course, depending on how we proceed with all the matches)


Every team should nominate one captain and choose a fantasy name.

Every team has the right to one time-out of 30 seconds per set.

Before a match starts, a coin will be tossed among team captains. The winner can decide on service/reception OR the side of the pitch.

Fair play

On Saturday we do not provide referees (we will have external referees for Sunday instead) but we would ask you to help as such on voluntary basis. Therefore, we need everybody’s cooperation for fair play. We propose the following approach:

Ball in or out of bounds: The team on whose side the ball went in or out decides. In case of doubt, the ball is to be repeated (i.e. replayed).

Concerning foul play (related to the right volleyball technique, in particular for the setting), the player who committed the putative foul is calling it a foul (“self-calling”).

Let’s keep in mind that the main reason why we are playing this tournament is to have FUN together.
