PRESENTATION

 
Presentation

Singapore becomes the ninth country in the Asian Volleyball Confederation to stage a SWATCH-FIVB World Tour event as Sentosa hosts its inaugural event for women.  Prior to the 2007 season, a total of 35 SWATCH women's events have been held by AVC-member countries (Australia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Macau and Thailand).  The event will be the second of three-straight women's events in Asia starting with a stop in Shanghai and concluding with the FIVB's first Beach Volleyball event in Seoul.  A fourth women's SWATCH stop will be staged in Asia with a season-ending event in Thailand as the 2007 Beach Volleyball campaign begins the qualifying process for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games.  Sentosa, which means tranquillity in Malay, is a popular island resort visited by some two million people a year.  A major tourist attraction, it hosts a sheltered beach of more than two kilometres in length on its southern coast, a musical fountain which uses the interaction of lasers against water particles to create three-dimensional images, and historical fortifications in Fort Siloso, dating from World War II.
