Normally speaking, around this time, we spread the new date for our annual Beachvolleyball Tournament on Zoutelande Beach, in Holland. Normally speaking, yes, but not this time, alas.. But why not?
After many successful editions, starting from 1991, we have decided to stop organising this wonderful 3CT International Beachvolleyball Tournament. The main reason being Henriëtte's other business activities taking up more and more time (which by the way is a good sign), and the fact that finding a suitable date is becoming harder and harder each year, there being so many other tournaments in the region in summer.
We do like to thank you for taking part one or more times over the past years. At the same time we'd like to offer you a few other opportunities to come and play beachvolleyball next year. In 2018, from Thu 10 May upto and including Sun 13 May we have the Zeeland Beach Classics here on Vlissingen Beach. This is a multi beachsport event for all ages with beachvolleyball, beachtennis and beachsoccer. Amateurs and top players can play here. Check out the fantastic 2017 pictures via their Facebook page. We'll keep you informed !
And should you be here in the summer, feel free to join us when we have our Summer Evening Beachvolleyball Tournaments, from 10 July till 16 August. Go to our Facebook page or website.
Sitting Beachvolleyball We are not (yet) going to do away with our sitting beachvolleyball tournaments. In 2014 we were the first ever in Holland to start this on the beaches of Zoutelande, and we want to continue this during the Zeeland Beach Classics in 2018, from Thu 10 to Sun 13 May. A perfect ambiance and the perfect location for the exposure of this great beachvolleyball discipline.
Furthermore we'd like to thank all our sponsors/partners, and all our volunteers who have always been ready to build up and afterwards take away the courts, who have done the table, or in any other way have contributed to all the successful editions.
Our website, though a bit thinner, will, for the time being, stay online. It forms an absolutely nice retrospect of the development of Beachvolleyball in Zeeland, and even in the Netherlands. In 1991 Hennie Swartjes and Jan Brekelemans were the very pioneers in organising such a big event.
And, of course, we do hope to meet you at the Zeeland Beach Classics in May, or at (one of) our Summer Evening Beachvolleyball Tournaments in the summer.
