Uniting the NETWORK of Beach Volleyball Communities around Australia

SurfVolley was established in 2012

  • Approved by SLSA
  • Rolled out to Surf Clubs in QLD, NSW, VIC & SA
  • Activated in 48 Surf Clubs

Founded by 5-time Olympian & Gold Medalist Natalie Cook

SurfVolley is uniting Beach Volleyball communities from Cairns to Cottesloe

Cairns, Rockhampton, Mackay, Mooloolaba, Surfers Paradise, Coolangatta, Coffs Harbour, Manly, Coogee, Maroubra, Newcastle, Mollymook, South Melbourne, Frankston, Hobart, Glenelg, Scarborough, City Beach, Cottesloe.

Communities who play on our nation's PRIME REAL ESTATE...

...for everyone to see.

Let's start with the kids....

The PRIMARY aim is to utilise the game of Beach Volleyball to instil CONFIDENCE in young kids

In the Summer of 2015, SurfVolley reached 15,000 Nippers at 39 Surf Clubs

It started with FREE COACHING SESSIONS integrated into Nipper activity rotations

Feedback from Surf Clubs indicated that the SurfVolley was valued as it would greatly help the Nipper retention rate

And then we built JOINT VENTURE EVENTS


  • 12 events over 2 summers
  • 4000 participants + 18,000 parents/spectators


  • Queensland Youth Championships
  • Victorian Youth Championships
  • South Australian Youth Championships
  • Northern Beaches Branch Championships
  • Point Danger Branch Championships (Gold Coast)

And then we built our OWN EVENTS with the help of:

  • Sea FM (Gold Coast & Sunshine Coast)
  • Kennards Hire (Gold Coast & Sunshine Coast)

and for the big kids too...

And we attracted a bit of attention along the way...

Plus we've been invited to State and Branch Surf Life Saving Leadership Camps in SA and Point Danger Branch
