Volunteers Needed for Great Ocean Road Beach Volleyfest
The biggest international festival of beach volleyball is coming down under, with Torquay set to host the new Great Ocean Road Beach Volleyfest from 23 November – 4 December 2022.
Local residents and volleyball fans have the chance to be part of history and join in the international beach volleyball festival, with fantastic volunteering roles now open.
Hundreds of volunteers are needed across roles in event management, competition delivery, transport as well as athletes services.
The Great Ocean Road Beach Volleyfest features three high profile events, including the Volleyball World Pro Tour Elite 16 and Challenge tournaments, as well as the opening round of the Australian Beach Volleyball Tour.
Volleyball Australia CEO Andrew Dee, said Torquay will be on show to a global TV audience and host the world’s best international beach volleyball players, with local residents invited to be part of the event through volunteering.
“We have some really special volunteering opportunities for the south coast community to be part of the Great Ocean Road Beach Volleyfest,” Dee said.
“Volunteers will not only have the chance to be part of an international sporting event in their backyard but also the chance to get up close to great sporting action.
“We have so many exciting opportunities for people of all ages to get involved and you don’t need any beach volleyball knowledge.
“You’ll have the chance to meet new people from across Australia and the globe as well as to be part of Torquay’s newest international sporting event.”
The 11 day festival of beach volleyball will also feature live music and an entertainment hub that promises to deliver something for the whole family.
With the biggest names in international beach volleyball set to hit Torquay beach, it will be the biggest display of world class beach volleyball in Australia since the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.
Among those set to feature will be Australia’s Olympic & Commonwealth Games silver medalists Taliqua Clancy and Mariafe Artacho del Solar, along with recently crowned gold medalists from the Birmingham Commonwealth Games, Chris McHugh and Paul Burnett.
