Television stations such as Sky Sports (UK), all channels of Esporte 3 (Spain), Fox Sports (Australia, Africa and Asia) and Eleven Sports (USA) are broadcasting the highlight King of the Court Series. “Wide international coverage means the format is considered very interesting for the sport,” said Wilco Nijland, COO of SportworX.
The FIVB and SportworX announced the launch of King of the Court Series 2018: a faster and rougher version of beach volleyball. Four illuminated stadiums in the Netherlands, Belgium and the US form the battlefields for the series.
King of the Court was conceived of as a form of training. Out of this came a faster form with five teams instead of two. The competition is played during the day, while the spectacular finals and festival take place in the evening.
