The FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championship The Netherlands 2015 will take place from June 26 through to July 5 in the Dutch cities of The Hague, Amsterdam, Apeldoorn and Rotterdam. Staged every two years, the competition will feature a total of 96 teams – 48 per gender – with the qualification process completed through the FIVB National Federation Entry Ranking and Continental Tours.
Alexander Brouwer and Robert Meeuwsen made history when they became the first Dutch pair to win gold in the men’s competition at the 2013 FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships which took place in Stare Jablonki, Poland. China’s Chen Xue and Zhang Xi lived up to their billing as the tournament favourites when they topped the podium in the women’s competition.
