The Mizuno Beach Volley Marathon® will take place despite of any weather condition. Of course in certain unfavourable weather conditions (or other external events) the organizers can decide at their discretion, to suspend provisionally or permanently the matches and the evening parties without any obligation of reimbursement. For all the categories, the Tournament Director can decide one or more suspensions of match and decree the recovery of the same when the external conditions will allow the teams to play again. In this case, it will be resumed the score set at the time of suspension. For 2x2 M/F categories format, the qualifying round matches could be also postponed to the next day (Saturday). In case of permanent suspension of the final round, the relative prize money will be equally divided between the teams that were still playing at the time of the suspension and awarded only if the amount per team is higher than 20,00 EUR. For 3x3 M/F and 4x4 Mixed categories format, when the Tournament Director decides for the permanent suspension during the qualifying round, the provisional rankings will be drawn up on the basis of the results achieved by each team at the time of suspension; for the teams that have not played any match will be assigned by default a point ratio equal to the average of the points calculated for matches played in the same category; for equal point ratio, the ranking position will be determined based on the date of registration (date and time of receipt of the application form).
In this case (permanent suspension of qualifying round), the prize money will be distributed equally between play draw, and assigned to different ranking positions in the percentages applied to the 2x2 category format. We would like to remind that in case there are less that 32 teams on a final matchplay draw (3x3 M / F and 4x4 Mixed categories format), the corresponding prize will be cancelled and will not be cumulated with the prize money of other categories. In case of permanent suspension of the the final round, for each matchplay draw that is still in the running, the prize money, with the exception of those already awarded, will be equally divided between the teams that were still playing at the time of the suspension and assigned only if the amount per team is higher than 20,00 EUR.
