The Vic Open is almost here! Time to get the sparkly pants out and get ready for some hot beach volleyball action and then the ridiculous St Kilda Festival!
Entries are now open for the Vic Open, we will be playing all divisions on Saturday the 8th of Feb on South Melbourne beach, and then the finals for the AAA’s only on Sunday the 9th of Feb on St Kilda beach.
The Vic Open is sanctioned this year and is part of the national tour (Challenge Cup #3) so there are National Ranking points available to all grades!
We will have over $10,000 in cash and prizes up for grabs: a few grand in prize money across all grades, tour t-shirts for all of the AAA players, singlets and crops for the AAA semi finalists. We are still in discussion with other sponsors so we will have more prizes available! It’s going to be amazing!
The AAA’s will be playing Double Elimination format, registration on Saturday morning will start at 7am, and games soon after. There will be no qualification event on the Friday. The other divs will be playing pool play and get to sleep in; your rego will be from 8:30am.
AAA’s Play in South Melbourne on Saturday until the completion of the quarter finals, and in St Kilda on Sunday for the Semi Finals and beyond. AA, A, B, C and 3-a-side Divisions play only on Saturday in South Melbourne.
Sunday the 9th coincides with the St Kilda fest, and we will be running our Semis and Gold medal matches for the AAA boys and girls on a court located just south of the St Kilda fest’s main stage on St Kilda main beach. Semi finals start at 9am for the girls, 11am for the boys. Gold medal matches start at 1pm. An estimated 350-400k people will be in the area for festival Sunday so it should be chaos down at the beach volleyball.
Seeding will be done as per our handbook, based on your previous results for the season in the competitions that you play in.
Entries are now open on the Vic Beach Website:
Entries close at 8pm on Thursday, 6th of Feb and the Seeding list will be available before 9am on Friday, 8th Feb.
Looking forward to seeing you all there.
