Beach heads inland

Posted by devo on December 10, 2009

THE Virgin Blue Regional Series is bringing many of Australia’s best players from the beach to the heart of Bendigo.

Among those volleyball stars is Sarah Battaglene, who hails from Manly on Sydney’s northern beaches. Battaglene will team with Victoria’s Lauren Spark in this weekend’s series, which will feature top players, including Olympians and world champions.

“A lot of people are converting from indoor volleyball to beach volleyball,’’ she said. ”This is a great opportunity for people in Victoria to convert to beach and use all of their skills.’’ The 21-year-old has never travelled to central Victoria and said the main difference between competition in a beach town to Bendigo will be the wind factor. more@BendigoAdvertiser ~ more@VicBeach ~ more@HeraldSun

Vic Beach have revamped their web site and started with a tantalising lead story.

Vic Beach & Epic Beach have recently signed a 3 year deal to manage the state series, however, at this stage we are unable to release our full calendar. This is because the AVF have not yet released the National Tour dates and events.

There is a massive story pending, with a new national tour organisation coming on board. This is the reason why there has been such a long delay, and this will change the sport in Australia as we know it! Read the whole release
