Spanish Federation Presents Beach Volleyball Tour Set To Kick Off July 12
At Spain's Olympic Committee, with Spanish Superior Sports Council (CSD) President Miguel Cardenal present as a guest, the Spanish Federation presented the Beach Volley Tour, which sports marketing firm Madison will organize, according to Enrique Ojeda of AS. The Tour will include five competitions, with the first taking place from July 12-14 in Valladolid on the beaches of the Pisuerga River. This circuit "is the solution the Spanish Federation has looked for to maintain competitive beach volleyball at the national level during the summer." The process has faced several problems, including a partial players strike. The competitions will not offer financial prizes, but the Spanish Federation is seeking enough compensation for the players to have free accommodations during the tournaments (AS, 6/26).
