The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Phuket Office in cooperation with Phuket provincial authorities, the Office of Tourism and Sports Phuket, Pentangle Promotions, and PTT Group are inviting sport enthusiasts to come down to the International Beach Volleyball Festival which will be held on the famous Karon beach in Phuket, from 23-27 March, 2017.
The event is expected to be attended by volleyball players from 20 countries around the world who will make up male, female and mixed teams to take part in the competition.
This is not the first time that Phuket’s Karon beach has been chosen as the venue for an international volleyball competition. The beach was also the venue for the World Tour male volleyball competition which took place from 2006-2013. The success of this event led to the Fédération Internationale de Volleyball (International Volleyball Federation – or FIVB) saying that Karon beach had the very best quality of sand, making it the perfect venue for the FIVB World Tour volleyball competition which is coming up in October 2017.
There are also other games to enjoy as well as the main competition on the beach. This includes the PTT School Cup Beach Volleyball Competition as well as a beach volleyball clinic, and booths from sponsors of the event.
