World Tour in Czech Republic, Singapore and Turkey
It’s a busy week in the World Tour with tournaments happening simultaneously in Ostrava, Czech Republic (four-star), Sentosa, Singapore (two-star) and Manavgat, Turkey (one-star). The venue at Ostrava is a unique one with beach volleyball courts built inside an abandoned factory in the city’s industrial park in the Vítkovice district. The debut of the new Brazilian teams of Alison Cerutti/Andre Loyola, Pedro Solberg/Bruno Schmidt and Evandro Goncalves/Vitor Felipe also highlight the tournament.
