Welcome to the EUI Beach Volley Club

The EUI Beach Volley group, “The Herons”, has been created to bring together people who play beach volley. Beach volley is a fun sports, so come along and try out if you enjoy the sun, the sand, and playing volley.



We usually play on Mondays at 18:30-20:30 and play outdoor in mixed teams of 2x2, 3x3, and 4x4. In any case, dates & times are managed based on self-initiative. To facilitate forming teams and booking courts, the “Beach Volley EUI” Facebook group may be used ( Everybody from the EUI community and friends who wish to participate is welcome to join.


The Florentia Sporting Club is located in Vicolo del Cionfo 6 which is a 15 minute walk from the EU, just off via Faentina. The Sporting Club has two outdoor beach-volley courts with sand ( which can be used upon prior booking. Opening hours of the Sporting Club: 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 EUI card is needed upon payment to get membership discounts, and the overall cost of the court depends on the number of players and the time chosen to play. Before the sunset no lights are needed so it is cheaper; the first hour with lights on change during the beach volley season. The cost of the court for EUI affiliates per hour is the following:

Day booking: 20€ per hour (5 EURO per person if four players; 2.5 EURO if eight players); 

Night booking: 24€ per hour (6 EURO per person if four players; 3 EURO if eight players).


Extra Activities

There is also an indoor Beach volley court during the winter months (November-February), the ASD Beach Games in Isolotto area. It is quite far from the EUI, so self-initiative & carpooling is very much needed! The Herons also sometime organize participation in competitive beach volley tournaments outside the EUI over the summer months, mainly but not limited to the beaches in Italy.

Coppa Airone

The glorious beach volley tournament organized for the EUI community and friends, taking place every May at the Florentia Club. In 2019, “Coppa Airone” takes place for two full days on 11-12 May. Stay tuned, more information on this coming soon!
