Dear Beach Volleyball Community

So far, we only knew a scenario like the current one from the fiction of various apocalypse movies. In reality, of course, none of us really have any idea how to deal with it. Only one thing unites us in this challenging time: the certainty that we have to put down everything that is not directly related to the elimination of the virus. A logical conclusion that, however, has a dramatic impact on all of us.

Experts are now predicting that the pandemic will peak in July and August. And that, in turn, means for us that currently, nobody can assume the responsibility to approach the implementation of the planned events with a clear conscience and with full conviction. After extensive discussions with the International Federation, our sponsors as well as partners and representatives from the cities of Vienna and Hamburg, we decided to cancel the two Major tournaments. And we can no longer contribute to the upgrade of the event in Gstaad.

We are sad to announce this decision. At the moment, we only have hope that the global crisis will soon subside and be under control. Then we will start the work to realize our events in 2021 with full energy and unwavering commitment.

My thanks go to everyone who has shared and supported our enthusiasm for beach volleyball over the past 25 years. I firmly believe that we will be able to provide proof of our subline again next year:

Never before has beach volleyball hit these heights 🤯 #ViennaMajor

Ahead of this summer’s biggest beach volleyball event, the A1 Major Vienna presented by Swatch, Austrian World Championship silver medalists Clemens Doppler and Alex Horst survey their home city.

Twelve months ago, legendary veterans Doppler and Horst wrote their own fairytale, winning silver at their home World Championships. Now, a year later, the crowd favorites are out to conquer the beach, their city and their fears.

Standing on the other side of the net on top of the Riesenrad are two of beach volleyball’s rising stars. The future of the sport lies in the hands of Anders Mol and Christian Sørum, the Norwegian youngsters who are one of the most-talked about teams on the sand.

The Scandinavians are on their own mission and want to write their own names into the history books and become the youngest winners of a Beach Volleyball Major Series tournament.

But which team will raise their game when beach volleyball makes its return to the Danube Island? Doppler and Horst will be hoping that every cloud has a silver lining.

The A1 Major Vienna presented by Swatch is from August 1-5 on the Danube Island.
