The VLY Beach Tour is Volleyball Ireland’s National Beach Tour – with three levels of Competition there is an event for everyone.
1* events: perfect for entry level players and those with a focus on fun, social volleyball. These are mainly 2v2 single sex competitions, but we do host the occasional mixed-sex comp and 3v3 tournaments.
2* events: these are for more experienced players who love competition. The 2* events are open to everyone, but if entries exceed capacity, then only the top ranked teams will enter.
3* events: our top level of competition and these are qualification only. The top 8 ranked teams on the VLY BEACH Tour will qualify plus up to 4 wildcards.
Jnr Tour: a new addition to the programme our Jnr Beach Tour is held mid week and is for players aged u20.
Typically, most VLY Beach Tour events are 2v2 and 3 set matches. Each team is guaranteed a minimum of 3 matches. However, we do hold the odd 1 set blitz style event. Formats may vary for each competition but normally there is a pool stage followed by single elimination knock out.
We play around Ireland with venues in Dublin, Galway, Kerry, Meath and Wicklow.
Competition entry is via our membership system: Go Membership. Links to sign up to each event are below. The team entry fee is typically 40.00 per team.
