Kish Island, Iran, February 18, 2017 – Beach volleyball athletes showed the basics of the sport to local kids during the #VolleyballYourWay camp organised before the start of the semifinals at the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour Kish Island 3-Star on Saturday.
Iranian beach volleyball players together with Belgian internationals Dries Koekelkoren and Tom Van Walle joined in, providing the kids with a wonderful experience and inspiring them to play the sport. And perhaps most importantly imparting a philosophy that beach volleyball is more than a sport and also a way of life.
Over 50 kids played with their idols on centre court and their response to beach volleyball was phenomenal.
