Scottish Volleyball will play host to SCD Beach Volleyball Zonal Event
from 12-14th May alongside the ever popular Scottish Student Beach Volleyball Tournament at Portobello Beach, Edinburgh.
With the news of Beach Volleyball’s involvement in the 2018 Commonwealth Games, the SCD Zonal Events have allowed our athletes to have a platform in which to compete on the international stage close to home with the added bonus of much needed FIVB Ranking Points.
The qualification process for the Gold Coast games has not been announced yet, but the athletes will need exposed to international level competition over a short period of time while picking up those points which can help move them through the CEV and FIVB ranking lists.
We welcome back successful pairing from the FIVB World Tour Lynne Beattie and Mel Coutts. They have a busy summer ahead and will be hoping to take maximum points which will help them potentially make some main draws at the CEV and FIVB ranking events they have entered.
We will also have the Youth Commonwealth Games and Youth Continental Cup pairings experiencing another International Beach Volleyball Tournament before their trips to Bahamas and Cyprus.
Denmark, Luxembourg and Ireland will be providing the International Competition for the teams.
Scotland is happy to show the depth they now have in both Beach National Team squads with more players than ever been given the opportunity to represent their country in both genders at this tournament.
The full schedule/matches can be found here.
Friday 12th May – Qualification Matches (Pool Play)
Saturday 13th May – Main Draw (Pool Play)
Sunday 14th May – Classification Matches followed by Semi Finals
Women’s Final – 2.00pm
The weekend is going to be a fantastic atmosphere and hopefully the numbers from 2014
can be matched from the spectators.
Entry is free for all spectators so you are more than welcome to come and enjoy the party and support our athletes.
