Van de Goor appointed The Hague Tournament Director
“It is a great honour to be part of a top tournament like this. I hope my experience and knowledge will help lift this event to an even higher level,” said Van de Goor at a press conference in The Hague.
In order to attract more spectators, promoters TIG Sports have announced that some of the Transavia Grand Slam matches will take place at the beach stadium in Scheveningen at later times. There are also plans to build an extra court in the historic centre of The Hague where some of the pool phase matches are scheduled to take place.
The tournament director's position will be a new challenge for van de Goor who has never made the cross over into beach volleyball unlike former partner Richard Schuil.
