22 Ago MIX GIURLANI SUMMER EDITION
Summer, sunshine, sea, and one of the most popular sports of summertime: beach volleyball. We love this fantastic, entertaining sport: this is why we are sponsoring Mix Giurlani Summer Edition, the largest mixed doubles beach volleyball tournament in Italy, which, for the fourth year running has this year once again attracted to the Torre del Lago marina a “team” of around 200 amateur beach volleyball players from all over Italy, competing in pairs.
The first weekend of July was incredibly hot, with lots of healthy competition on show for the volleyball fans! The competition is held at Andrea Doria beach resort, under the direction of the Bad Players association in collaboration with To Be Sport Events.
Saturday 6 July saw the start of the first Italian qualifying stage, with 100 couples divided into 25 groups and the goal of scoring as many points as possible. The overall absolute ranking based on the “score” made it possible to create the gold, silver and bronze scoreboards. The qualifying rounds were followed by direct elimination rounds to the end, until the tournament finished on Sunday in the late afternoon, with a novel change for 2019.
All the couples that were eliminated in the first round had the opportunity to play again, even with a different partner: it is no coincidence that the tournament that hosts them is called SecondLife!
Another success and a huge satisfaction for us at Giurlani, who believe in the value of sport and how it helps to promote healthy values and fun for all.
