The September 2023 edition of the AeQuilibrium Beach Volley Marathon® has a prize money up to 21,250,00 euros that will be doubled to 42,500,00 euros with the ‘Jackpot Option’.

On the environment’s side
Respecting the beauty of Bibione beach is a commitment we want to honour together with our participants. We are on a virtuous path to progressively eliminate the use of plastic. We will be taking the first step using environmentally friendly spritz jugs for a completely plastic free beach party.
Night beach parties policy
Participation to the night beach parties (Beach Parties) is restricted to people over 18 registered to the sports event as ‘Athletes’ or ‘Non-Athletes’.
Insurance policy to cover non-participation due to health issues or injuries
For the 2023 edition of the AeQuilibrium Beach Volley Marathon®, the Organizer offers participants the choice of buying an additional insurance policy covering the risk of non-participation to the sports event due to health issues or injuries. The refund can be requested from the organizer by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) up to 48 hours prior to the beginning of the sports event, attaching the medical files attesting the health condition or injury.

There will be qualifying rounds (on Friday) Round Robin system with four/five teams and a final round (on Sunday) with a competition bracket with 32 teams, following the double elimination method: after the first defeat the team will move to the losing bracket; after two defeats the team will be eliminated.

Like before, more than before
The huge Bibione beach, the best sport in the world, music and friends, your heart beating with happiness. A new edition that is already headed towards a record in Beach Volley history: 300 courts will be built to host the most attended open tournament in the world. At the AeQuilibrium Beach Volley Marathon® we will rediscover the joy of having fun to the rhythm of the vôlei de praia, the sea, parties, life. We are going to enjoy it as we have always done, rather… better than before.
AeQuilibrium Beach Volley Marathon® is the most popular and most attended open event of this discipline, a celebration of sport and fun. Set in Bibione (Venice – Italy), the Tournament gathers every year tens of thousands Beach Volley amateurs of every age and every game level, from all over the world. Animation, entertainment, night parties on the beach and accommodation in agreement complete the offer of an unique sporting event.
The 2024 edition offers, in addition to the well known editions of May and September, a Special Edition which takes place side by side with the Final Game of the Italian Beach Volley Society Championship, set in Bibione during the weekend 6th-7th-8th June. You can register to the AeQuilibrium Beach Volley Marathon® as “Athlete”, joining the tournament with a team, or as “Non-Athlete”; in this case you can use reserved Beach Volleyball courts and participate in the Beach Sitting ParaVolley, an open tournament in which athletes of different abilities compete against each other. For minors, the parent/guardian is giving consent to the minor’s participation in the sporting event, respecting the General Regulations and the “General conditions of sale of the tourist package”.
All participants (“Athlete” and “Non-Athlete”) can access for free to the evening parties on the beach, can have discounts in affiliated pizzerias and restaurants, reduced entry tickets to the thermal pools and to the beach service. On the occasion of the sporting event, the “White Night” is taking place: during the evening the various restaurants, shops and clubs in Bibione have extended opening hours until late into the night.
For all participants (“Athletes” and “Non-Athletes”), whether or not they have booked the stay in agreement, after registering from the website www.beachvolleymarathon.com, is required to download the “Sportfelix” app, available for iOS in AppStore and for Android in PlayStore. Once registered in the app, with the same credentials used to register on the website, a QR Code appears in the “Ticket” section of the app allowing the use of the various services offered. The registration procedure for “Non-Athletes” without staying in agreement can also be carried out using the “Sportfelix” app only, thus avoiding online booking from the website.
