Sand, sun and fun to dominate sixth Timeout Beach Series event
The sixth and penultimate Timeout Beach Series 2017 event, the Fabupharm Swakop Masters will be hosted at the Mole Beach, Swakopmund, on 4 and 5 November.
The event will have the following categories: 2-a-side Men, Ladies, Social & Mixed Youth 4-a-side Social Mixed (one female on court at all times) and the deadline for entries is 2 November.
The competition will see top beach volleyball athletes taking part, including, Carmen Kühn (Queen of the Beach 2017), Daniel Pfeifer (King of the Beach 2017 & Timeout Beach Series 2017 Overall points leader).
“We are very excited to welcome back Fabupharm as tournament sponsor after sponsoring the Swakop Masters event every year since 2015. We are very thankful for their support and are looking forward to working with them again for this event,” said James Verrinder Series and Tournament Director.
The Timeout Beach Series has a total of seven events in 2017 and athletes collect points throughout the series to give an overall standing for the Men’s, Ladies & Youth categories. Accounting for the fact that some athletes are not able to attend all seven events, the five best results from each athlete will give the final overall standings.
After four Timeout Beach Series 2017 events, the overall standings so far are: Men’s: 1st Daniel Pfeifer – 840 points; 2nd Fabian Pfeifer – 816 points; 3rd Heiko Prior – 768 points
