“We are delighted that we can offer to our top European Beach Volleyball athletes a unique platform to perform during this challenging time.”
The continental showpiece event will return to Majori beach after Latvia’s most popular seaside resort previously crowned the best Beach Volleyball teams in Europe in the summer of 2017.
The white, sandy, iconic beach of Majori is a very popular destination not only for tourists, but for Beach Volleyball players as well. A major international Beach Volleyball competition took place for the very first time in Jurmala back in 2014, with a CEV Satellite, before the organisers stepped it up with the delivery of a CEV men’s-only Masters in 2015, a double-gender event in 2016 and the historic EuroBeachVolley a year later - see after movie below

“It is awesome that the defence of the title will take place at home. Anastasija and I have shown good performances in Jurmala, we have been successful in almost all tournaments held there but our performance will have to be the best ever to win again.”
Beach Volleyball has literally found its home in Latvia, especially following the bronze medal claimed by Martins Plavins and Janis Smedins at the London 2012 Olympics.
Latvia’s success story in the sport has gone from strength to strength since those glory days at Horse Guards Parade, with Smedins and Aleksandrs Samoilovs claiming the men’s continental crown in 2015 in Klagenfurt before Tina Graudina and Anastasija Kravcenoka achieved the same feat in the women’s competition last year in Moscow.
