Players Barefoot

Volleyball England Barefoot Beach Fest 2010

Brighton Beach Fest - doubles and fours
A Volleyball England Participation Event

August 21st and 22nd 2010

The weekend rain didn’t put a dampener on proceedings at the Volleyball England Barefoot Beach Fest tournament. The national event saw a number of local teams win trophies.

Tournament organiser Damion Sulc said “The standard this year was much higher with teams travelling from across the UK to enter. We even had a couple of players from Europe who specifically came to compete in Brighton”

On the Saturday a men’s and women’s doubles tournament took place. There were 120 players making up 60 teams. In the men’s tournament the Brighton based Polish team of Ireneusz Jagszewski and Wojtek Kiedrzynski beat the French pairing of Alex Chevau and Alex Vandeneleken (23-21) in a tight run final.

In the women’s tournament Yellowave Director Katie Mintram got to the final with her partner Soobee Appleton. They came second to Eva Czinegeova and Gabi Medricka, 21-11, who showed why they are regular VEBT national tour winners.

The rain held off for the final of the mixed 4-a-side tournament on the Sunday where Oxford team John Williams, Martijn Stroo, Ketlin Varkki and Ania Scigala beat a Yellowave team of Katie and Spencer Mintram, Damion Sulc and Soobee Appleton in a gripping final finishing 23-21.

Spencer Mintram said “It was such an exciting final. We were five points behind but with the crowds support on home sand we came back to bring the score line to 21 all. Even though we lost, it was a great match.”
