Stellar volleyball at Tivoli
17 September 2019 | Sports
In the social category, eight teams played in two groups, battling it out in a round robin format, while in the ladies’ event, five teams fought it out for the title. The men’s competition consisted of 10 teams, divided into two pools, with the top two teams in each pool advancing to the semi-finals.
The organisers say a huge thank you to Clausthaler (powered by African Marketing) for their sponsorship of three events in the Timeout Beach Series this year. “We are thankful for their support and look forward to working with them again in 2020,” Technical Director of Timeout Beach Series James Verrinder said.
Other thank yous go to Reinhold and Kirsten Schreiber at Tivoli Southern Sky Guest Farm for hosting the beach bums on their beautiful farm, as well as Max, Melanie, Johnathan and Svenja for looking after everyone.
This was the fifth time the Clausthaler Kalahari Open was held at the guest farm after the huge success of the tournament every year since 2015. According to Technical Director of Timeout Beach Series James Verrinder, “This tournament is a unique opportunity to play beach volleyball on a farm, in a stunning location, away from the city and beautiful red Kalahari sand between your toes. What more do you need from a sport?”
