During The Swatch Beach Volleyball Tournament This Week, Watch Models Compete On The Beach, Enjoy An International Bar Crawl And More

The Swatch FIVB World Tour Finals are officially underway, and that means there are plenty of fun and free activities—from a beach volleyball exhibition between models to a Fort Lauderdale Beach bar tour—in store for locals.

Beginning Tuesday, the Swatch Country Bar Tour invites fans and athletes to take an international bar tour, without leaving Fort Lauderdale.

Six Fort Lauderdale Beach bars (Elbo Room, Spazio, Blondies Sports Bar, Tsukuro, Sangrias Mexican Cantina and Rock Bar) representing eight countries are offering drink specials through Sunday. Each location was designated by participating volleyball teams according to the countries they represent.

Fans can pick up a free personal Country Bar Passport at the FIVB World Tour Finals, which entitles holders to special deals and discounts. Guests who snap photos of themselves at any of the Country Bar locations and share them on social media with the hashtag #SwatchWTFinalsUSA also have the chance to win prizes.

And the party doesn't have to end there. There are also two tournament after-parties being hosted by America's Backyard this weekend:

Official Beach After Party: Friday, Oct. 2 from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m.

Stars and Players Night After Party: Saturday, Oct. 3 from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m.

Tournament reps promise surprise appearances by athletes at the latter, and admission is free to both until midnight, at which point the cover charge is $10.

Additionally, on Saturday, models from two U.S. agencies, Next and Runway Talent Group, will play on Center Court in a 30-minute exhibition between semi-finals at about noon. 

Outside of these events, an interactive Vendor Village featuring on-site activities, entertainment and merchandise will take over Fort Lauderdale Beach Park throughout the six days of competition.

Some of the booths include:

  • Charging station and Hello Sunny giveaways
  • Agility ladder and vertical jump measurement
  • Massage treatments
  • Beach Majors Series merchandise booth
  • The Red Bulletin magazine photo booth, table tennis and giveaways 
  • Swatch Relax Zone lounge area with smoothies
  • Orange Theory Fitness tent with rowing machine and exercise competition
  • America’s Backyard tent featuring corn hole games, pool splash zones and lounge
  • Kid Zones with Coconut Climb and an inflatable castle
