The National Olympic Committee of Cambodia organised the two-day Beach volleyball event for Friday and Saturday with the aim of promoting friendship between neighbouring countries ahead of the SEA games in Laos in December. The friendly tournament featured two teams from Cambodia and a team each from Laos and Vietnam in a round-robin format with teams playing each other once. The Vietnam pair came first in the overall standings, with Cambodian teams 1 and 2 coming second and third respectively, while Laos failed to make the podium. However, a Laotian delegate noted that stronger pairings stayed in Laos to train whereas the attending team was there to gain experience in international competition.

Sponsors of the event included Anchor beer, Naga World and Coca-cola with prizes including 150 crates of Anchor, five hotel rooms for three nights in Phnom Penh and a Coca-cola drink.
