Get set for a beach of a time in 2013!

From July 1 to 7 this year, Stare Jablonki – a small village in the Mazury region of Poland – will host the ninth edition of the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships.

Stare Jablonki’s stadium centre court seats 9,000 spectators along the picturesque shores of Lake Mazury.

Staged every two years, the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships feature the brightest stars of the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour, with 48 teams in each gender taking part. The 2011 edition of the Championships took place in the Italian capital Rome where Brazil gained back its dominance with a gold medal win in both the women’s and men’s competition. Larissa França and Juliana Felisberta da Silva captured gold in the women’s final while Alison Cerutti and Emanuel Rego took home the men’s title. It was the first time that Larissa and Juliana were gold medallists at a World Championship having won silver twice and bronze once in previous editions. Olympic champions Misty-May Treanor and Kerri Walsh knocked out defending world champions Jennifer Kessy and April Ross in the quarterfinals before defeating Chinese duo Chen Xue and Xi Zhang to reach the final. The Chinese pair eventually won bronze. It was an all-Brazilian affair in the men’s finals with Emanuel and Alison beating compatriots Ricardo and Marcio Araujo to win their first major title as a team. Germans Brink and Reckermann finished with a bronze medal after beating Latvia’s Martins Plavins and Janis Smedins.

Poland has an extensive history of hosting beach volleyball events with the Myslowice Open and the Mazury Orlen Grand Slam in Stare Jablonki having been regular tournaments on the World Tour. It has also hosted the 2011 FIVB Volleyball World League Finals in Gdansk and will host the FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Championship in 2014.
