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’.

The AeQuilibrium Beach Volley Marathon® 2023 edition has a prize money up to 60.000,00 euros that will be doubled to 120.000,00 euros with the ‘Jackpot Option’. At registration you will be able to decide if your team will take part in the Tournament choosing the “Jackpot Option”, which will allow the doubling of the prize money up for grabs (see ‘Prize money’ section).
