Important Notes at the Challenging Times of COVID-19 Pandemic
The global COVID-19 outbreak has had a significant impact on Beach Volleyball. In addition, movement and travel restrictions imposed by governments have resulted in the suspension of the World Tour Calendar.
Recently since the restrictions are gradually relaxed in some part of the world by the government, it is possible to organise sporting competition again and efforts have been made by respective National Federations and event organizers in order to find a safe way to restart the beach volleyball season in accordance with the guidance of medical experts, government and public health authorities. Due to the risks associated with COVID-19, this is a slow and careful process that requires well planning.
The health and safety of athletes, coaches, officials and fans remain the top FIVB and CEV priority, and both parties are working on developing guidelines for beach volleyball competition restart that will be shared to all interested parties at a later stage.
Further to above, it is important for all participants to study the below points carefully:
