We are now into main draw action over in Moscow this week on the 2011 FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour. From the Canadian side of things, there is only one team that made it through qualification into the main draw and that is the women's team of Elizabeth Maloney and Heather Bansley. The other female Canadian duo of Lessard-Martin experienced their first tournament this season which they were not granted direct entry into the main draw. While the French Canadian team made it through the first round, they lost to a team from Belgium in the second round of qualification.
On the men's side of the tournament, both Canadian duos lost in the qualification round. Josh Binstock and Rich Van Huizen lost in the first round to Kadziola-Szalankiewicz of Russia while Christian Redmann and Ben Saxton were defeated in the second round by Ces-Cès of France.
Liz and Heather find themselves in Pool C of the main draw which consists of the following teams:
