Dubai is gearing up to host the first-ever snow volleyball tournament in the Middle East in October, the government of the Emirates announced on Monday.
The Dubai Media Center said in a statement that the four-day sporting event will be held under the auspices of the International Volleyball Federation and will take place at Ski Dubai, an indoor ski resort that is part of the Mall of the Emirates.
Snow volleyball, developed in Austria in 2008, is a three-player version of beach volleyball and made its Olympic debut as a demonstration sport during the 2018 Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea. Since then, snow volleyball has become more popular in Europe and the Americans, and the International Volleyball Federation is pushing for its inclusion as an official winter Olympic sport.
