The Corona pandemic has not spared Switzerland's largest beach volleyball event. Therefore, a joint decision has been taken with the FIVB to cancel the Beach Volleyball World Tour 5-star event scheduled for 7-12 July in Gstaad, Switzerland.
We will keep you informed about the tournament 2021!

Welcome to the beach in the alps

Charming, traditional and classy - Gstaad is located in the stunning alpine scenery in the German-speaking part of the Canton of Bern in southwestern Switzerland.

The small town, which has a very laid-back atmosphere, has a population of about 7,600 and is located 1,050 metres (3,445 feet) above sea level. The region is not only known for its popularity amount the high society, but it is known for its various top events. One of them is the Swatch Beach Volleyball Major Gstaad.

In 2019, the popular tournament celebrated its 20th anniversary. The organizing committee, supported by many volunteers, will once again provide an unforgettable week for players and guests. As part of the Beach Volleyball Major Series in 2020, Gstaad will for sure prove to be – as always – a terrific host city for the international Beach Volleyball elite from July 7th to 12th 2020.
