April 24, 1981, marked the birth of a revolutionary movement in Bonn, Germany – a movement that would change the landscape of paravolley forever. On this historic day, the international federation, World ParaVolley, emerged and ignited a global passion for inclusivity and excellence in sports.

Fast forward to April 24, 2024, and the world is buzzing with excitement as it comes together to celebrate the sport’s spirit on World ParaVolley Day.

This year’s festivities hold special significance as they coincide with the upcoming Paralympic Games in Paris. After months of fierce competitions, 16 teams stand poised to showcase their talents, vying for glory and inspiring millions.

For our athletes, sitting volleyball and beach paravolley is more than just a game – it’s a platform to defy stereotypes, break barriers, and prove that anything is possible with hard work and perseverance.

The sport’s evolution is a testament to the progressive vision of World ParaVolley, which has continuously strived to make the sport more accessible and inclusive for athletes of all abilities.

From its humble beginnings, World ParaVolley has championed innovative initiatives such as beach paravolley, opening up new opportunities for participation.

At the heart of this special day are the athletes themselves – the true embodiment of passion, resilience and determination. These larger-than-life individuals, with their spirit and energy, stand as superheroes in the eyes of millions, inspiring with their extraordinary talents and will. They demonstrate that disability is not a limitation but a source of strength and motivation.

Equally integral to World ParaVolley are the dedicated volunteers who work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure the success of the sport. From technical officials to organisers and supporters, these individuals play a vital role in creating a supportive environment where athletes can thrive and excel.

As we come together to celebrate World ParaVolley Day 2024, let us renew our commitment to empowering the sport. Let us celebrate achievements of our athletes and volunteers, while also looking ahead to a future where the sport continues to be a catalyst for positive change.

Every serve, every spike, every block, and every victory is a tribute to the boundless potential of our sport.

Happy World ParaVolley Day!
