Kuala Lumpur, March 15 2017 – Malaysia is counting down the days until it plays host to its first FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour tournament, at the Langkawi 1-Star event that takes place on 15 and 16 April.
The tournament is the second 1-Star event of the World Tour calendar and follows on from the Shepparton 1-Star event that took place in Australia in early March.
The tournament will give Malaysia’s teams the chance to pit themselves against international teams, notably beach volleyball powerhouses Germany and USA who will send teams in both men’s and women’s tournaments in pursuit of the $20,000 prize for winning.Teams - MenTeams - Women
“MAVA will activate all key officials to ensure the success of this tournament,” Hanif Basree Abdul Rahman, Deputy President of the Malaysia Volleyball Association (MAVA) said. “We hope that this tournament will continue to inspire more talents and interest towards beach volleyball.”
After Langkawi there are five more 1-Star tournaments in 2017; in Monaco, Pacific Harbour, Fiji, Daegu and Ulsan in Korea and Agadir in Morocco.
