Following the success of four annual Czech Real Estate Charity Beach Volleyball Tournaments, which took place in Žluté lázně, JLL is now organizing the fifth year of this charitable and social event. This year the event will be held on Wednesday 7th August 2019, again at Žluté lázně.
The main aim of this sporting event is to raise money for the selected charity organizations to support their needs. Last year, a total of 657,000 CZK was raised for charity through organizing the event. The event is primarily intended for companies from the commercial real estate industry such as developers, investors, consulting firms and law firms. The event is also aimed as a social event for our industry where participating companies and their family members can also come to support and join in the fun. Same like last year we will also include program for children so that Mums and Dads can take some time out.

On Wednesday 7th August 2019 the 5th Annual Real Estate Charity Beach Volleyball Tournament will take place in Žluté lázně at Podolské nábřeží 1184/3 in Prague 4. Companies from the real estate industry and associated industries can register for the tournament which will be followed by an open air party. Children and families will be entertained by a whole day program. Last year twenty-three teams from the industry competed on five courts whilst having fun and enjoying the great weather and venue.
The event can be attended by non-players, such as colleagues and family members, for whom there will be no admission fee and their participation and support is equally as important to make the day a success.
It is going to be a fun and relaxing day - not just for players but also for your children. So bring them along! There will be a volleyball school for children aged 3 to 15 years. Experienced trainers for children will teach them the basics of the game rules and volleyball techniques. We will also have a clown and and other children's activities in the children's corner to make sure your children enjoy the event as much as you do and always have something to do, create and learn.
It doesn't end with the final match! On the contrary, that is where it all begins - at least for some of us! So accept our invitation to a BBQ and beach party following the announcement of the results and the handover of cheques to the charities. After a day on the pitch (or in the stands supporting the teams) we all need a bit of pure relaxation and a nice cocktail on the beach while the sun sets over the Vltava river. The DJ will be playing some beach party classics as well as the latest hits … so we can dance and party till dawn!
This year we have decided to support the charity Slunce pro všechny. The fund was established in February 2002 to support children and adults with special needs. The fund operates its private nursery, primary and secondary school in Stochov and Slunce všem service center in Unhošť. In addition, the fund manages material donations and their subsequent distribution among organizations working with children and adults with special needs and provides financial contributions to these organizations and individuals.
Money raised from this year's JLL Real Estate Charity Volleyball Tournament will help people with special needs to achieve their ambitions by financing their rehabilitation stays, sports and cultural activities.
