Australia's best beach volleyballers will converge on Bunbury when Volley by the Bay hits Koombana Beach next year.

Bunbury City Council and Volleyball WA announced today that three major competitions will be held over a week in April and is set to attract competitors and visitors from around the country.

The events include the Alcohol Think Again Beach Tour, Australian Under-23 Beach Championships and Australia Junior Beach Championships.

It will be one of the first major events to make use of the revitalised Koombana Bay foreshore.

City of Bunbury tourism, events and promotion manager Isabell Evans said Volley by the Bay was a high profile tournament, which added to an already impressive list of events for the city.

“It is fantastic that we are able to work with Volleyball WA and Volleyball Australia to bring outstanding athletes to Bunbury for such a major week-long competition,” Ms Evans said.

“It adds to a host of other major events – such as the BMX Australia National Championships in March and Nitro Circus in April – that will bring significant social and economic benefits to Bunbury.”

The event is supported through the council’s partnership with Sports Marketing Australia and budgeted at $25,500.
