Keep the beach clean-
Think environment!

For 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.

All the players will need to be aware of the forceful "Cape Doctor" that appears sometimes from nowhere. While the 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.
