It was a slow week in the World Tour, with only one tournament happening, but a very busy one outside the courts. Olympic champions have split, new teams were formed in Brazil and players went through surgery over the last few days and Beach Shorts brings all of that and more to you.

Join us and get updated on the major beach volleyball happenings around the globe:

Alex Ranghieri sidelined

Italian star Alex Ranghieri is set to miss a significant portion of the World Tour season as he underwent surgery on his right knee. In the meantime, his partner Marco Caminati is playing with Enrico Rossi. The Net Patroller is already rehabbing and we wish him a speedy recovery!

Brazil hosts one-star event

After a four-star event in Itapema last week, the World Tour remains in Brazil, now with a one-star tournament held in Miguel Pereira, Rio de Janeiro. A total of 33 teams (19 men’s and 14 women’s pairs) from 12 different countries will compete in the tournament, which runs until Sunday.

Talita is still training

Brazilian star Talita Antunes, who is expected to give birth to Renato, her first son, in a month-time, hasn’t stopped practicing beach volleyball yet. The 35-year-old blocker is still doing some limited exercises in the sand with the help of her husband, beach volleyball coach Renato França. Isn’t it cute?
