The volleyball tournament was played in three categories: B+, B-, and C.

The team of Prague won the gold medal in B+, Budapest succeeded in B-, and in C level, the gold medal went to Bratislava.
Not only sports, but also fun and party were important the very same weekend. Swimmers, volleyball players, and friends celebrated together in “Rote Bar” at Volkstheater, one of the fanciest party locations in Vienna.
