Beach Volleyball

As an optional sport, it means that the host city can choose to include this sport if it wishes - there are other sports which must be on the program).

In 2018 at the Gold Coast is the first time that Beach Volleyball will be held at the Commonwealth Games. There was a total of twelve men's and twelve women's teams competing (48 athletes, at 2 per team).
