Beach Volleyball Fun Days at the Dome in Swakop

The players of the Timeout Beach Volleyball Academy are practising hard for the first of four Beach Volleyball Fun Days, sponsored by Refuse Solutions and hosted at the new beach volleyball courts at the Dome in Swakopmund.

The event is scheduled over two days, On Saturday 04 March, a Youth Beach Volleyball Fun Day will be hosted for players aged 10 to 15 and on Sunday 05 March for adult beginners and social players.

Refuse Solutions constructed a beach volleyball facility that is able to house two international-sized courts first used for the Refuse Solutions Zone 6 Beach Volleyball Club Championships in December 2016. The facility is also big enough to accommodate four beach courts for local tournaments and everyday use.

The upcoming Beach Volleyball Fun Days consist of a morning session which will be led by a team of coaches, teaching the basics of beach volleyball, individual ball touches, and how to play in a team. In the afternoon sessions, mini-tournaments will be played by the trainee players.

Lee Coetzee, Director of Refuse Solutions, said “We are enthusiastic about the development of this great sport and in constructing a partnership to work side by side with The Dome and the Namibian Volleyball Federation in developing beach volleyball in Namibia”.

Dave Hammond, Sales & Marketing Manager at The Dome, Swakopmund said; “Our main aim is to support youth and sport development. It does not matter what sport you wish to play, we just want to keep the youth busy. Beach volleyball has always been on our agenda and we are very excited to officially bring it to the Dome Family”.

James Verrinder, NVF Director of Beach Volleyball said; “The Beach Volleyball Commission at the NVF is very excited about this ground-breaking partnership and is looking forward to continuing the development of beach volleyball within Swakopmund and the Erongo Region.”

The second Beach Volleyball Fun Days are scheduled for 22 and 23 April.

Experience has taught us that companies usually want their sport sponsorships published prominently, being the reason for a sports category. It now also carries general sport items but only those with direct Namibian relevance. - Ed.
