Phuket, Thailand, September 16, 2011 – A press conference was held in Phuket, Thailand on Thursday to begin the countdown to the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour Phuket Thailand Open powered by PTT, the final women’s event of the 2011 season, which takes place from November 1 to 6.

Representatives from the sponsors were on hand to help launch the event alongside the Thailand Volleyball Association and Mr Tri Augkaradacha, Governor of Phuket Province.

Additionally, three local teams that are set to compete at the tournament joined the dignitaries. Kamoltip Kulna and Varapatsorn Radarong; Jarunee Sannok and Usa Tenpaksee and Tanarattha and Rumpaipruet will all represent the hosts.

It will be the sixth season in a row that Phuket will host a World Tour event and on the last five occasions, an American pair has taken top spot. Surprisingly, Brazil have only ever had one pair finish on the podium, Maria Clara and Carolina at last year’s edition, although world champions Juliana and Larissa will be hoping to add to that tally.
