Beach Volleyball FIVB World Tour 2021


Recommended Posts

  • 2 months later...

The qualifier for the 1st Cancun 4* World Tour starts today. It's three 4* World Tour tournaments in Cancun in a row. The 'country quota' matches for the 2nd tournament starts literally the day after the final, so there is a constant supply of high level beach volleyball the next 2-3 weeks.


The tournaments are vital for the Olympic ranking. Many teams are still in contention for a spot in the cleaned top 15 in the ranking.

Hopefully :NEDVarenhorst/Van de Velde can improve on their QF exit in Doha.


Edit: it looks like Varenhorst/Van de Velde have actually withdrawn on the last day. Don't know what the reason is. That's a real shame,  they are the only Dutch duo that can realistically still get into the top 15 on top of the 2 couples in qualified positions.

So :NED Varenhorst/Van de Velde needed a 3rd place finish in the 4* tournament in Ostrava this weekend to qualify for Tokyo by ranking. Last week they showed that they are capable of a top 3 finish.


Earlier today they beat favorites :NOR Mol/Sorum in the RO16. And then they lost to their own countrymen :NED Brouwer/Meeuwsen in the QF! Just when I started to be hopeful.
