The last Grand Slam event before our finals is right around the corner! Beach lovers we are exactly 1 sleep away from the London Grand Slam hosted by SideOut UK and we can’t wait to get it started!
All of the top teams have been battling it out all summer in order to qualify a spot in the UK Beach Tour Grand Slam Finals this September in Bournemouth. Some teams have been successful by claiming a title at one of our other grand slam events held in Weymouth, Edinburgh and Cardiff. On the men’s side they are, Issa Batrane/Freddie Bialokoz, Aldo Rendon/Andrea Maggio and Harry Jones/Niko Gleed. On the women’s side we have 2 teams with Jess Grimson/Daisy Mumby winning both Weymouth and Cardiff Grand Slam events and the other to win came from Iuliia Tokarenko/Maria Sviridova! As you can see it is all to play for!
The recent Cardiff Grand Slam Winners of Harry Jones/Niko Gleed will be doing an Instagram takeover for us in London this weekend so we spoke with Harry to hear how he felt going into this weekend coming off his very first Grand Slam victory in Cardiff. He said, “we’re super excited for another Grand Slam up in Leyton this weekend! It’s another chance for us to compete and gain more experience as a team, especially before Tour finals. With it being the last chance for some teams to secure their finals space, it’s bound to be a great tournament!” We couldn’t have put it any better than that Harry and we can’t wait for you to take us around with you this weekend!
Both the men’s and women’s draws are stacked with talent and they will be bringing the firepower out there this weekend so if you get the chance to be sure to get down to Leyton for some high flying action! For now enjoy your evening and get ready to spend some time with Harry & Niko all weekend! Good luck to all competitors this weekend!
See you at the beach!
