2016 was great but…
All of the staff at the Swatch Major Series would like to wish all beach fans a very happy and prosperous New Year.
We would like to thank fans, players, federations, officials and volunteers around the globe for the fantastic support throughout what has been a breathtaking 2016 for beach volleyball and the Swatch Major Series. We couldn’t have done it without you!
With 2016 now in the past, we look forward to what promises to be an unbelievable 2017 with four Swatch Major Series stops and the Swatch World Tour Finals which will make for a truly spectacular summer of sensational sporting drama – not to mention the odd party here and there!
We’ve gone through hours of stunning footage to bring you the best bits from the sand from the last 12 months and somehow squeezed it into 60 seconds of non-stop digging, diving, serving and spiking all for your pleasure!
So enjoy the video below and see you NEXT MONTH for the first tournament of the season – the Fort Lauderdale Major!
Remember VIP tickets for the event are available now – so what are you waiting for? Click here to check all the details of how to add a bit of glitz and glamour to your beach volleyball experience.
Thanks 2016 – here’s to 2017!
See you at the beach!
