For over 15 years, we have offered a unique experience to both domestic and international students from all over the world to explore Brisbane and South East Queensland. UQBVC is the only university-based beach volleyball club in Brisbane, and is the largest sports club at The University of Queensland with more than 150 members participating each semester (90% of participants are international students who have gathered from all corners of the world). [/extra]



SocialThursday, 8 October 2014 – On 13th September one of the most exciting events that UQBVC shares with its members  – Social 4’s – was held at UQ’s St Lucia campus. On the beautiful sunny Australian day, members were placed into teams of four and had a friendly competition of digging, setting, spiking and diving into the sand. At this tournament, Red Bull had amazingly sponsored our club by providing free drinks and sun umbrellas for members to rest under during the hot afternoon. Also, a great thanks goes to Boost for continuously providing us with tons of ice to keep everybody refreshed. My Australian Dream, a local International Education hub, has also given us a bunch of opportunities to promote UQBVC events.

The famous tournament, in this edition, brought together 20 teams and almost 100 players to the fine sand of the wonderful UQ St Lucia Beach Volleyball courts facilities. Members were highly motivated by sponsorship supplies and enjoyed ample social interaction between fellow players and audiences. The goal of the tournament was to provide a chance for members to socialise among new faces and make new connections through a randomised team selection. See the photos below for our two amazing teams which made it to the final match. It was indeed a match to be remembered for the player’s amazing technical performance and minds set on the prize.

Spectators saw numerous lengthy rallies. The team (left photo) including our UQBVC President Jake Robson, and his teammates Nigel Weir, Sarah Chok, and Diego Montiel became this semester’s Social 4’s Champions. Their expressions as they paraded off the court were priceless! The French team (bottom left photo) lead by Benoit Gay came runner-up.
