City Beach will host the largest Beach Volleyball event ever held in the state on Sunday, with the Alcohol. Think Again Beach Tour to be delivered alongside the Think Again High School Beach Cup.
A staggering 18 courts will run across City Beach on Sunday, eclipsing Optus Volley by the Bay 2019’s record-setting 17 courts. As the state’s biggest-ever Beach Volleyball event, Volleyball WA CEO Robyn Kuhl has called it a ‘marquee success for the sport’s growing footprint in school-aged sport’.
“It’s exciting to welcome so many people to City Beach and see 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 the next generation.” Kuhl said.
Beach Volleyball is proving to be the sport of choice for WA High Schools with 129 teams competing in the Think Again High School Beach Cup. Eclipsing last year’s event by 14 teams, almost 500 students will battle it out for the title.
A further 39 teams will play in Round 7 of the Alcohol. Think Again Beach Tour. Headlining the stop are number one seeds Rachel Knights and Shelby Maher in the Women’s AAA Division. While in the men’s competition Jonathan Hague and Maksim Bacovic have secured the number one seed. Maher and Bacovic return to the Beach Tour after winning the Alcohol. Think Again WA Open earlier in February, with Maher chasing her fifth win of the 2019/20 tour.
The Alcohol. Think Again Family Zone is back on Sunday from 10 am to 1 pm with Kids Volley, give-aways and more on offer.
