The last World Tour event held in Australia took place in 2019 when Esteban and Marco Grimalt of Chile claimed gold in the men’s tournament in Sydney and home team Nicole Laird and Becchara Palmer were victorious in the women’s. Beach volleyball was also included in the programme of the Commonwealth Games for the first time when Australia hosted the multi-sport event on its Gold Coast in 2018.
It is now also confirmed that the 4-star double gender event scheduled to take place in Poland from May 27 to 31 will be held in Warsaw. The World Tour returns to the Polish capital a year after Evandro Goncalves/Bruno Schmidt of Brazil defeated Anders Mol/Christian Mol of Norway to win the men’s gold and Australians Mariafe Artacho/Taliqua Clancy outplayed the USA’s Kelley Larsen/Emily Stockman to claim victory in the women’s.
Evandro and Bruno were gold medallists in Warsaw in 2019
