With July coming to an end we have had an amazing time with all of you in the UK Beach Tour Family! July saw the start of the Grand Slam events where we witnessed historic results on the sands of Weymouth followed by a first with Edinburgh playing host to the first ever Grand Slam in Scotland! Both events showcasing the high level of beach volleyball we have in the UK!
July also brought scorching temperatures whilst we had over 50 competitions taking place in a range of star and a range of gender events. The tour is in full flow and it is only building and the future is looking bright as we even look towards our Junior tour and see such a talented crop of athletes coming through for the future. We definitely expect at minimum more of the same throughout August as we get closer to the penultimate time of the season with the Champions Race heating up and the finals set for September in Bournemouth!
On the Grand Slam side August has us taking the tour to Cardiff, Wales and London, England in what will be the last 2 events for teams to book a ticket to the finals! 2 men’s team in Issa Batrane/Freddie Bialokoz and Aldo Rendon/Andrea Maggio have already booked a place having won at Weymouth and Edinburgh and the same on the ladies side with Daisy Mumby/Jess Grimson and Julia Tokarenko/Maria Sviridova booking a place for Bournemouth in September! We can promise that these last 2 events are not going to disappoint!
We hope the month of August will bring more great weather and an even larger range of action packed events! Both the senior and junior UK Beach Tours are flourishing and we can’t wait to keep you updated via our social media streams on Instagram and Facebook!
Hopefully see some of you there!
