Ever wondered why Beach Volleyball was the most watched sport by Australians during the Athens Olympics and the third most watched Olympic sport in the world? Is it the sun is it the sand?! Considering it only debuted as an Olympic sport in Atlanta in 1996, the immense popularity of Beach Volleyball is clearly testament to its many appealing factors.
Vodafone SLAM Beach Volleyball, now in its 5th year, has rocked Palm Beach in NSW every Summer to the tune of 1,200 participants and thousands of spectators. SLAM attracts everyone from amateurs to volleyball enthusiasts, crazy costumed teams, sexy bikini girls, spunky bronzed boys and lunatic beach lovers everywhere. And now for the first time, Vodafone SLAM is travelling around Australia and everyones invited!
