City Beach will host yet again one of the largest beach volleyball events ever held in the state on Sunday 15th, with the Alcohol. Think Again Beach Tour to be delivered alongside the Think Again High School Beach Cup.
Beach Volleyball continues to be a sport of choice for West Australian High Schools with more than 100 teams set to play in the Term 4 edition of the 2020 Think Again High School Beach Cup. 125 teams participated in the Term 1 edition.
Eclipsing last year’s event by an additional 27 teams, this Sunday will see almost 500 students battle it out for Term 4 title at City Beach.
Hosted alongside the opening round of the Alcohol. Think Again Beach Tour, City Beach will have 16 courts lining the beach on Sunday. As one of the biggest beach volleyball events held in the state, Volleyball WA CEO Robyn Kuhl is calling it a ‘marquee success for the sport’s growing footprint in school-aged sport’.
“We are delighted once again to welcome so many people to City Beach this year and can’t wait to see some of the state’s best junior and senior players battle it out. It’s a fantastic opportunity for the state’s senior players to showcase the sport and connect with younger players.” Kuhl said.
Leading the charge in Round 1 of the Alcohol. Think Again Beach Tour stop will be number one seeds Rachel Knights and Lindsay McKervill in the Women’s Elite Division, and Caleb Lampard and Ky Landers in the Men’s Elite Division. Forty-eight teams will be competing in this event which will begin on Saturday 14th.
The Alcohol. Think Again Social Volley Zone is back on Sunday from 9 am to 1 pm with Kids Volley, giveaways and more on offer.
