The World Beach Games is an international multi-sport event organized by the Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC). The games are held every two years. The first edition was planned to be held in San Diego, United States from 10 to 15 October 2019, but was later relocated to Doha, Qatar after San Diego failed to raise the necessary funding.
On 14 June 2019, ANOC announced Qatar as the host of the 2019 World Beach Games because of its “spectacular oceanfront locations". The event will now be held from October 12 to 16.
Several other beach-sport events exist, like the Asian Beach Games held every four years, the South American Beach Games and the African Beach Games.
