Featuring 11 beach sports including Beach Volleyball, Beach Football and Beach Ultimate, the 3-day event to be held on May 24-26, 2019 at Lingayen, Pangasinan is a showcase of new alternative sports in which Filipinos can be competitive at the world stage.
“We are home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. PBG aims to introduce to Filipinos these new and rapidly growing beach sports where we can naturally excel and be competitive against the world’s best.” Said PBG General Coordinator JP Demontaño.
With athletes from China, Dubai, Thailand and Malaysia competing alongside Filipino athletes, the event promises to deliver world-class competition and entertainment for sports-lovers and vacationers. Following the intense action in the playing grounds will be live parties and festivities where athletes and fans can share a wonderful time together at the beach.
Beyond entertainment, PBG is making a big effort in educating Filipinos about these new beach sports. Several top sports groups and organizations be conducting free clinics and set up casual games among spectators.
