Stavanger, Norway, June 10, 2015 - The third of seven days of competition in the second SWATCH Beach Volleyball Major Series is underway here Wednesday on the dockside courts in Vagen Harbor where the schedule at the US$800,000 Stavanger Major is highlighted by women's Main Draw pool play and the men's qualification tournament.

The Stavanger Major is the second of three SWATCH Major Series events with the third being held after the FIVB "senior" Beach Volleyball World Championships in The Netherlands (June 26-July 5) in Gstaad, Switzerland (July 6-12).  The inaugural SWATCH Major Series stop was last week in Croatia where Dutch men and Brazilian women topped the podium at the Porec Major.
