News from the Zonal Associations

Odense, Denmark, June 10, 2017. After a day with perfect Beach Volleyball weather, there are still many countries in play for the final victory at the NEVZA zonal event in Odense, including Denmark, who still have two teams in the tournament. The sun was shining and the day offered many exciting matches with intense fights and close results.

Belgium (Liesbeth Mouha/Katrien Gielen) and Norway (Ingrid Lunde/Oda Johanne Ulveseth) qualified directly to Sunday’s semis, while the matches for the last two places among the top four include an all-Danish affair between Helle Søndergård/Simone Okholm Hansen and Line Trans Hansen/Maria Elisabeth Tyndeskov in the one quarter-final and Victoria Faye Kjølberg/Ane Guro Tveit Hjortland (NOR) against Victoria Palmer/Jessica Grimson (ENG) in the other.

Actions started from early morning when the first teams were eliminated and had to be content with 17th place. Three Swedish, two Danish and one Norwegian teams had to take their place at the stands after their respective losses and watch the rest of the tournament from there.

In the 3rd round, the top-seeded Norwegian team Kjølberg/Hjortland missed a spot in the 4th round following their loss to wild-card holders Mouha/Gielen from Belgium (seed 8).

The three remaining top-seeded teams Søndergård/Okholm Hansen (DEN seed 4), Palmer/Grimson (ENG seed 3) and Lunde/Ulveseth (NOR seed 2) all moved on to the 4th round.

On a sunny day the tournament had to say goodbye to, amongst others, the Danish teams Trine Bak Jonassen/Pernille Witt (No 17), Signe Zibrandtsen/Amanda Andersen (No 17), Freja Barkler/Jannie Rasmussen (No 17), Sara Stief/Frederikke Schade Jensen (No. 9), Caroline Udemark Hansen/Mie Lindgren (No. 9) and Cecilie Køllner Olsen/Lærke Mygind Grønfeldt (No. 7).

On Sunday there are matches at the beach centre at Dalum from 10:00 am.  
The semi-finals are played at 12, while the final is scheduled for 3 pm.
