CEV Youth Beach Volleyball Continental Cup finalists learn from Satellite matches

Turkey's young players are hoping to make their way to the Summer Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing

Antalya, Turkey, May 8, 2014 - The Turkish teams participating in the 2014 CEV Youth Beach Volleyball Continental Cup Final from May 15-17 in Antalya are taking the opportunity to watch the matches of the 2014 CEV Beach Volleyball Satellite Antalya.

The young Turkish players are trying to absorb as much as possible from the experienced men and women participating in the Satellite tournament. Adem Mert, assistant coach of the Turkish duos, comments that it is good for the youngsters to watch and learn from what they see on the sand court.

“We started preparation with 8 women’s and 8 men’s U19 teams,” Mert says.  “We have organised three preparation camps so far.  One was in Ankara, one in Istanbul, and the third took place in Alanya.  Now we continue in Antalya.  We observed many players over this period and chose our pairs.  Our preparation started about one and a half months ago. Two women’s and two men’s duos will join the Youth Continental Cup Final.”

“The reason we are at this Satellite tournament is to give our young players the opportunity to learn by watching,” Mert explains.  “We started our preparation in beach volleyball halls and now we have the chance to continue our work outdoors in Antalya.  I think the players have prepared well and I hope they will get good results.”

The young players of Turkey stated that they are very happy to be in Antalya at the CEV Satellite and it is very helpful for them to watch some of the international matches taking place.

The 2014 CEV Youth Beach Volleyball Continental Cup Final serves as a European qualification tournament for the inaugural beach volleyball competition at the 2014 Summer Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing, China.
