Keep the beach
the first time in nine years international Beach
Volleyball returns to Cape Town with the Menís South
Africa Open taking place in the Mediterranean climate of
southern South Africa in mid-March.
Cape Town is arguably one of the most beautiful places
in South Africa with
Table Mountain, the view from Cape Point, the magical
mild weather and the Cape Peninsula National Park, a
patchwork of mountains, forests and coastline all
combining to make for an awe inspiring setting.
Cape Town, the legislative center of South Africa, is
renowned for its outdoor pursuit opportunities and Beach
Volleyball will be thriving in this environment come
March with a week of high class action from the best
menís athletes in the world taking place on the
beautiful sands of Camps Bay.
the players will need to be aware of the forceful "Cape
Doctor" that appears sometimes from nowhere. While
traditional wind, which whips in from the south-east,
will add to
the mystic of the place, it will of course also play a
crucial role in the Beach Volleyball action.
Off court Cape Town boasts some fascinating historical
sites, excellent museums and vibrant markets while its
climate is perfect for producing the world renowned Stellenbosch white wine.
Thereís no doubting, whatever the reason for being in
Cape Town from March 23-28, there will be plenty to do
and see, especially on the beach where the Swatch-FIVB
World Tour will take centre stage.
