Volleyball Australia

Australia’s biggest beach volleyball competition sells out for the first time in 16-years (since the Sydney Olympics).

They Said

“ Pineapple managed VolleyBall Australia’s social media throughout ‘VolleyFest’ in March 2018. It’s the pinnacle beach volleyball event of the year. They established local partnerships and oversaw the event to become the most successful in VolleyFest history, with tickets selling out 2-weeks before the event! This has not happened since the 2000 Olympics.” ~ Steve Hart, Media Director.

“The most successful VolleyFest in the history of VolleyFest competitions” ~ Baz Wedmair, Event Director.
