Paris 2024, the 5-ring qualifiers on the sand

The goal is Paris 2024, the Olympic Games in France, which will take place between July and August next year. Some European couples have already qualified, others are still in the balance. For this reason i 12 “Futures” tournaments on the Beach Pro Tour 2024 have absolute value. As has become tradition, the European beach volleyball season in Madrid begins in the ultra-modern Parque Deportivo Puerta de Hierro in the Spanish capital.

The season will then continue with three planned events in Italy. Cervia (Ra) will organize a new international beach volleyball event in 2024 after hosting two Futures tournaments last year. The other two events on Italian territory will take place: in Battipaglia (Sat), which will host a Beach Pro Tour tournament for the first time, and Messina, which had already organized a stage of the European BPT circuit in 2023.

The Beach Pro Tour then returns to Spiez, Switzerland. The stop is planned for the end of May and beginning of June. The beachers will then move to Poland (Krakow), France (Lille) and Bulgaria (Sveti Vlas). From mid-June, the Beach Pro Tour's European tour will stop on the island of Ios in the Aegean Sea. Finally, an all-male leg of the BPT 2024 will take place June 20-23 in Geneva, Switzerland. And on this day, a month after the start of the Olympics, the draw for European athletes will be fully determined.
