The ANOC Executive Council has decided to postpone the next edition of the ANOC World Beach Games to 2023 in order to alleviate pressure on the National Olympic Committees (NOCs) and ensure they can focus on preparing their athletes for the rescheduled Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games and Beijing 2022 Olympic Winter Games.

ANOC had intended on hosting the next edition of the ANOC World Beach Games in 2021 following the great success of the inaugural edition in Qatar last year. In January, ANOC opened the bidding process for NOCs to submit their interest in hosting either the 2021 or 2023 editions of the Games. However, following the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the rescheduling of Tokyo 2020 to 2021, ANOC decided it was in the best interests of NOCs and their athletes to move its flagship event to 2023.

The 2019 ANOC World Beach Games in Doha, Qatar included wakeboard and waterski jump disciplines.
