The country’s best beach volleyball players from across the UK, both men and women, will converge on Perth’s Darnhall Beach Centre over the weekend of July 10th/11th for a UK 3 star Beach Tour event which will see teams of two scrambling in the sand towards valuable Commonwealth Games match practice.
This prestige event will put the Darnhall Beach Centre firmly on the UK beach volleyball map with the men’s competition taking place on Saturday 10th July with a maximum of 12 teams competing in four sections of three teams with the top teams progressing to the knock-out stages. A similar format will see the twelve women’s teams compete on the Sunday, again all looking to get match practice in before a final qualification tournament at the end of the summer.
Players from all the home nations will be represented at Darnhall and it will be an early start for the teams with a 9 am start of play on the two sand courts on both days with the competitions reaching a climax in the late afternoon with semi-finals and a final.
There will be local interest in the men’s competition in particular and local volleyball enthusiasts can cheer on the Scottish players, willing them to reach the semi-final spaces in the first instance in the hope that they will reach the medals’ podium at the end of the competition.
The 3 star UK Beach Tour event will be supported by Perth & Kinross Council and Perth Beach Volleyball Club members.
