PRESENTATION

Beach volleyball comes back to The Hague in 2011

The penultimate round of 12 double gender stops on the 2011 FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch World Tour will be hosted by the Netherlands as the international beach volleyball circuit returns to The Hague for the third-straight season from August 23-28. It is also the fourth-straight season that the Netherlands has hosted an international event following the 2008 FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch Youth World Championships for players under the age of 19 at Hommerson Beachstadion, the most popular beach in the country. Last year's tournament, the final double gender event of the year, saw USA's Casey Jennings and Kevin Wong cause an upset in the men's contest by beating Brazil pair Bruno Schmidt and Benjamin Insfran in the final to pick up their first gold medal as fellow Americans Matt Fuerbringer and Nick Lucena completed the podium with the bronze. In the women's contest Maria Antonelli and Talita Antunes clinched their second tournament victory of the year (after success in Marseilles, France) with a win over China's Xue and Zhang in the final. Angie Akers and Tyra Turner rounded off the top three with a bronze medal win. Pictured to the left below are men's gold medallists Wong (left) and Jennings.
