Exmouth beach front was the setting for the 2010 Exmouth Beachball Volleyball Open Championships.
LAST Sunday saw the staging of the 2010 Exmouth Beach Volleyball Open Championships.
Once again, there was good weather for a superb day of volleyball. Teams travelled from all corners of the South West for the event and there was also representation from the London area!
At the end of the day, it was local sides who took the top honours. In the Ladies Pairs it was an all-Exmouth Volleyball Club final with Silvia Angelini and Gosia
Krzyszkowska taking on Ali West and Nikki Batho. The final was a well contested affair, won 2-0 by Angelini and Krzykowska.
Ottery St Mary pairing of Joe Willis and Danny Lewis made it through to the final of the Men’s Pairs, where they came up against Welsh duo Lewis and Stout, who were beaten finalists twelve months previously.
After taking the first set, the match looked like it was going to a third and final set, but, a late charge by Lewis and Willis in the second set, got them through to a 2-0 score line and the 2010 Men’s title.
Third place in Ladies event went to Ciacura and Vogel with Tanner and Johnson finishing fourth and Altmaee and Buchwald taking fifth. Hare and Weaver finished sixth, Adams and Wehrmeister came seventh and Cattrall and Curle finished eighth.
In the Men’s competition, the minor places saw Krountchev and Eulenberg finish third and Choukroun and Riso were fourth, whilst four pairs shared fifth, Clare and Dowling, Gapinski and Biederka, Oldfield and Thompson and Fairweather and Hanratty.
