Vegard Høidalen (born 10 May 1971 in Skien) is a professional beach volleyball player from Norway, who twice represented his native country at the Summer Olympics: 2000 and 2004. Partnering Jørre Kjemperud he won the bronze medal in the men's beach team competition at the 2001 Beach Volleyball World Championships in Klagenfurt, Austria.

Høidalen was critical to how the system works.[3]
