This past Friday saw Wateraid run its annual Beach Volleyball tournament at City Beach Volleyball Centre. Along with Volleyball, Wateraid run many events year-round, in support of cleaner and better sanitation of water worldwide. On 23rd March on a sunny afternoon, it was City Beach to take centre stage and host 60 work people keen to shake a full week of work with some lightly spirited beach volleyball, and an option of trying beach tennis.
The competition was fun, yet slightly competitive, with a round robin format giving the ten participating teams plenty of practice to improve on their skills. After three matches per team were completed, dinner was served with a host of volunteers cooking a BBQ, accompanied by salads, which were all warmly received by all. Once everyone had their appetites fulfilled, the finals began. Wwith the intensity rising another notch, and under the floodlit lights and a healthy crowd, the title of 2018 Wateraid Volleyball tournament was taken out by a group that were named, ‘The Shredders’, for their apparent good looks. Everyone went home happy, with three lucky winners also taking home raffle prizes that totalled to about $600 in value, that were donated to the cause.
All in all, every team that participated enjoyed it thoroughly, with event survey’s coming back positively, coupled with a $1600 final profit for Wateraid, chances are we’ll be back on the sand next year!
