Vodafone Summer Series - Event 1 results

Vodafone City Beach turned on the sunshine as the top seeds in both Open Mens and Open Womens divisions went undefeated, to take out the first event of the Vodafone Summer Beach Volleyball Series on Sunday.

Marty Suan (WA) and Bo Soderberg (Denmark) played convincingly throughout the entire Open Mens Tournament to win each match in straight sets. The final loomed as the match of the day, as the top seeds met last years series champions Mick Nelson and Brad Tutton in the final. The match certainly did not dissappoint the crowd. Some massive hits and spectacular rallys had the members section of Vodafone City Beach on the edge of their seats, as both teams showcased their skills.

Becchara Palmer and Olivia Orchard (SA/SASI) were dominant in their matches in the Open Women's division. Again the top seeds were undefeated in all 5 matches & put in a very strong performance to take out the final 2-0 against a new pairing this summer Stacey Kloeden and Julie Todd. Becchara Palmer, the recently crowned U19 World Champion was in great form as the pair made some great digs and converted crucial transition plays to come out on top.

The Open Mens and Open Womens teams now look toward next weekend as the Vodafone Australian Beach Volleyball Tour kicks off in Manly.
