Scorching action on and off the court at Scarborough Beach last weekend

Temperatures were not the only thing soaring over the weekend as competitors took to the sand at Scarborough Beach, spectators were treated to some of WA’s best volleyball action as balls were hit over nets along the pristine coastline.

Perth’s scorching temperatures add another environmental factor for players to contend with in an already physically demanding game at the 2023 Alcohol. Think Again Beach Volleyball WA Open.

The amphitheatre at Scarborough Beach creates the ideal stadium-like atmosphere for spectators to watch beach volleyball and players feel the buzz and excitement generated by the crowd, particularly during the grand final matches played on a specially created show court.

There were lots of familiar faces in the top placings for the female Elite division, Jasmine Serra and Tessa Browne beating Kyla Sanchez and Keete Kreen in the Grand Final match. Men’s Elite division winners Mitchell Field and Brandon Eagle from Queensland just beat our local pair Jonathon Hunt and Matthew Worthy.

Volleyball WA would like to thank our naming rights sponsor Healthway for their continued support of the tour and the sport throughout the year.

The tour heads down south next to Bunbury, on February 4 & 5 at Koombana Bay.
