Regularly based on self-initiative at the Florentia Sporting Club
The EUI Beach Volley Club “The Herons” has been created to bring together people who play beach volley. Everybody from the EUI community and friends who wish to participate is welcome to join.
Regular games played outdoor in mixed teams of 2x2, 3x3, and 4x4. Dates & times are managed based on self-initiative. To facilitate forming teams and booking courts, we use the Aironi Whatsapp group. Send us an email if you wish to be added. There. Is also a "EUI Beach Volley" Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/255642728242752/)
Note: during the winter months (November - February), there is a possibility to play in an indoor beach volley court: “ASD Beach Games” in Isolotto area. It is quite far from the EUI, so self-initiative & carpooling is needed.
The Florentia Sporting Club, Vicolo del Cionfo 6 ( a 15 minute walk from the EUI). Florentia has two outdoor beach-volley courts with sand (http://www.florentia.fi.it/beach-volley) which can be used upon prior booking. Opening hours: Monday-Saturday 9:00 – 23:30; Sunday 9:00 – 19:00. Tel. of the Florentia reception to book: 055577320. Please note that it is possible to book only within the same week, so if you wish to play Monday night, you can book only starting from the same Monday morning! Also, during “high season” the pitch is quite popular, so make sure to always call as soon as possible.
The glorious Beach Volley Cup “Coppa Airone” organized for the EUI community and friends takes place once or twice per year for two full days at the Florentia Sporting Club.
“The Herons” are also open to compete in beach volley tournaments outside the EUI over the summer months, mainly but not limited to the beaches in Italy.
