After taking a pandemic-related hiatus in 2020, the crème de la crème of beach volleyball returned to one of Europe’s most beautiful cities for the A1 CEV EuroBeachVolley Vienna 2021. Presented by Swatch, this tournament was part of the Beach Volleyball World Tour and the first tournament after the Tokyo Olympics. And it was a real showstopper: the top 32 men’s and women’s teams battled it out for the European Championship titles in the spectacular Red Bull Beach Arena from August 11–15, 2021. Among the women, Swatch’s Swiss Proteam superstars Nina Betschart and Tanja Hüberli beat their Dutch counterparts to take the gold and have the honor of calling themselves European champions.
Swatch fans at the championship also had the chance to visit the Swatch Truck, which made a stop in Vienna. There were many fun activities to enjoy between matches, including contests to win prizes, and a showcase of the latest Swatch collections – including SwatchPAY! watches.
