The ninth FxPRO Monte-Carlo Beach Volleyball should add a little heat on Larvotto Beach the weekend of June 17 and 18.
This is the only Monegasque and French competition registered in the World Tour 2017 of the International Federation of Volleyball, and 16 of the world’s best teams will compete for $10,000 prize money, divided according to ranking and the Prince’s Cup.
This highly sought-after professional championship, organised by the Monegasque Volleyball Federation and presided over by Prince Albert, will bring together 32 players. Teams from the US, Germany, Denmark, Scotland, France, Greece, Israel, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic (with two teams), Serbia and Switzerland and, the Queens of Beach Volleyball, the Brazilian women’s team, will show their passion for this sport, which has been an Olympic event since the Games in Atlanta in 1996.
Given the very high level of the players’ ability, the sets will win on strategy, technique, speed and power. In preparation for the World Championships, to be held this summer in Vienna, the Monegasque tournament will be a test of the very high level of competition.
Facing the sea and in an official Olympic venue, some 20 matches will be held on the two non-stop days. The final will take place at 4 pm on Sunday in the presence of many Monaco personalities followed by the awards giving.
