What better way could there be to treat the hangover of Athens and the Olympic Games then to take a trip to magical Mallorca where soaking in the sun and lounging by the sea should work wonders on the aching limbs of Beach Volleyball’s skilled craftsmen. Yet the rest and relaxation can only take place on this Balearic isle after all players present give their all to gain victory at the Spanish Open.

For the past 30 years, holiday-makers from all over Europe have been flocking to the island of Mallorca, keen to experience the superb Mediterranean climate, the stunning coastline and the unique hospitality.

As one of the leading destinations in the Spanish tourist industry, Mallorca has also welcomed the world's leading men's Beach Volleyball players for the past three years and this summer the largest of the Balearic Islands will host the women's World Tour as well for the first time since 1992.

One of the most attractive aspects of the Spanish Open is the location of the tournament where the courts are lined up directly adjacent to Playa de Palma beach, thus allowing the players and capacity crowds the freedom and the fortune to take a dip in the clear-blue Mediterranean waters in between matches.

In 2002 Brazil’s Adrina Behar and Shelda collected their second gold medal of the year, by defeating Americans Kerri Walsh and Misty May in an action packed final 2-1 (21-13, 17-21, 16-14). It was the first success for the Brazilians over the US-team for the year.

This tournament sits as the final tournament offering Olympic qualification points for the 2004 Games so the action is bound to be tense. This tournament is not to be missed.
