Temporary sports locations
With its unique combination of beach and city, The Hague is known for hosting many events on the beach and in the The Hague Beach Stadium. Both sites are big summer attractions for beach and water sports events, such as the Volvo Ocean Race and the Beach Volleyball European and World Championships. In winter, the Red Bull Knock Out race takes over the beach. The city centre also offers a range of unique locations for beach sports, such as Spuiplein square and the Hofvijver (‘court pond’). The latter is also a stage for extreme sports, such as The Hague Pro Freestyle in combination with a site like Grote Markt square, which also hosts the annual winter sports event Rock a Rail.
