Heritage Oil Beach Volleyball 2’s Competition 2013

Updated: August 19, 2013

Sunday 18 August 2013 concluded the JVA’s summer beach volleyball tournaments with a Heritage Oil’s Beach 2’s competition, where a record number of 16 teams participated in 114 timed matches, plus two finals.

Mirka Panka suffered a bout of cramp during the ladies final and it was touch and go whether the ladies would be able to resume play but after a short period the game continued.

The men’s final was a thrilling battle with some superb demonstrations by Jose on how to spike the ball over the net. Court coverage by the opposition’s Marcin Pajek was also noteworthy.

Ladies In it to Win it winners:
Las Chicas Carambas (Karolina Zablocka and Raquel Lopez) beat Mirabella (Mirka Panka and Izabella Gawlicka) 2:0 (21:17, 21:13).

Men’s In it to Win it winners:
Jose Figueira and Ruben Vieira beat Paul Adamson and Marcin Pajek 2:0 (21:8, 21:1)

In addition, special mention to the Not So Pro winners for their sterling efforts throughout the day:
Ladies: Magic Touch’s Alexis Edwards and Malin Nilsson

Men’s: Tim Macready and Nick Guy

The JVA would like to thank Heritage Oil for sponsoring the event, Victor Hugo Limited for supplying the water, the Gunsite Cafe for supplying lunch and Diane Fitzjohn for providing massage support to the players throughout the day.

Beach volleyball will continue throughout the rest of August and September (weather permitting) and anyone interested should come down to the Gunsite on Thursday evenings from 6.00pm.
