Volleyball is one of our core sports in Düsseldorf

Based on the experience we have gained by organising numerous tournaments in the last ten years, we will be
able to host a large tournament. Having secured at least 10 courts (up to 13 available), we will be able to host 700 participants
(900 max.). Each level will host a final (A-levels at CASTELLO), refereed by professionals.
