San Carlos City hosted the First Negros Island Beach Volleyball Tour joined by 27 teams at the Center Mall ground last July 23.
The said teams for both men’s and women’s divisions (14 for men and 13 for women) came from the different localities in Negros Occidental province including qualifiers from outside Negros Island.
Bea Tan, Founder of Beach Volleyball Republic and Organiser of Negros Island Beach Volleyball Tour – San Carlos said the top 4 teams from yesterday’s qualifying rounds will join other top teams from all over the country to compete for the main event on July 30-31, 2022.
Tan cited that total prize money of P70,000 will be given to winners.
She said guest teams will also be coming to the city to play including the UAAP, and Manila and Cebu-based club teams.
“This is the first of the many beach volleyball programs we will see in San Carlos as an effort to inspire our local players to take up the sport”, she added.
Tan also said that the event was made possible thru the support of the local government unit of San Carlos and with the efforts of its young local leaders to promote beach volleyball as well as other beach sports.
She added that after the event they will align with the city for grassroots camps and age group tournaments since the beach volleyball facility is already available in the city.
An estimated 40×32 meters sand court was created for the said event which also serves as the venue for local talents and enthusiasts to hone their skills in beach volleyball, beach soccer, and beach frisbee among others.
Tan also invites beach volleyball players and enthusiasts to follow the Beach Volleyball Republic through Facebook and Instagram to get more updates on their programs and schedule of tournaments.
