The week in the sands of the world
Another week is gone and that means that the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships Hamburg 2019 presented by comdirect and ALDI Nord is one week closer.
However, while late June doesn’t come, beach volleyball players continue perfecting their crafts around the planet and there’s a variety of opportunities for them to do it this week.
Join us on Beach Shorts and find out what we’re talking about!
