Set Up A Rally On Doha's Volleyball Courts For Hire

Volleyball is a popular sporting activity in Qatar, and if you love the game, you're in good company…

In recent years, the country has become an established venue for various international volleyball tournaments, including the FIVB (the International Volleyball Federation) Club World Championships (men's and women's), the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour Finals and the 2019 ANOC World Beach Games, and volleyball events at international competitions, such as the 2005 West Asian Games and the 2006 Asian Games. At home, Qatar has a volleyball governing body, the Qatar Volleyball Association, men's and women's national teams, leagues and annual national tournaments, the Amir of Qatar Cup and the Super Cup, and a beach volleyball team (one of the best in the world). At an international level, the men's national volleyball team have competed in the FIVB World Championships, World League and the Challenger Cup, the Asian Championships, Asian Games and Asian Cup - their best result having finished 4th at the 2006 Asian Games, 4th at the Asian Championships in 2015, and 7th at the FIVB Challenger Cup. And Qatari volleyball duo Ahmed Tijan and Cherif Younousse, one of the best volleyball teams in the world, achieved Gold at the 2018 Asian Games and Bronze at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (bringing home the first Olympic medal in the sport).

There are, to support the nation's love of volleyball, a host of courts open for hire (as well as opportunities to take lessons and join teams and amateur leagues). We have compiled a list of venues that can be rented by the hour so you and your chosen volleyball squad can bump, set and spike it to your heart's content!
