New volleyball championships added to annual Coolangatta Gold

Coolangatta Beach will once again play host to the annual Coolangatta Gold on 15 – 16 October, with the new Cooly Classic Beach Volleyball Championships being added to the lineup.

The newest inclusion in the weekend-long event will feature a two day competitive Pairs Tournament and a one day social four-a-side competition on Sunday, that will see volleyballers battle it out on the new courts located on the beach opposite The Strand.

Connecting Southern Gold Coast CEO, Peter Doggett, said the Coolangatta Gold is one of Australia’s most gruelling races.


“With Coolangatta now the start and finish mark, spectators are provided with a great show from Coolangatta Beach,” said Mr Doggett.

“We are also thrilled to see the new Coolangatta Beach Volleyball courts that were installed earlier this year getting some good use ahead of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

“It’s a great opportunity for all the community to watch as the best of the best battle it out in the surf while both competitive and social volleyballers compete on the sand.”
