AS Monaco Volleyball Tournament
AS Monaco Volleyball organized its first beach volleyball partner tournament with 16 teams competing on the Larvotto beach. A total of 32 players from Monaco, Italy and different regions of France participated in the high-level Series 2 tournament. The quarter-finals were played in two sets of 15 points.
Competition was especially straining due to extremely high temperatures. Wind, weather, heat and fatigue are all part of outdoor sports, teams have to know how to strategize accordingly and the high heat played an equally big role for all teams during the tournament.
AS Monaco’s team made it up to the quarter-finals, but still left the tournament with a smile, saying it was a high-level competition in an Olympic sport.
Beach volleyball has become quite popular in the Principality, especially since the Monegasque club formed the AS Monaco Beach Volley Academy in 2015 with the objective of forming teams to participate in regional, national and international competitions. The club is always looking for new players to join their academy and try their hand at the fun and rewarding sport.
