FIVB: Morocco Open (Men)

Fivb morocco

Just when you thought that The FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour was done for the season, you remember about the fall events.  I must admit, I was already making my transition into indoor and getting ready for the startup of NCAA, CIS and CEV volleyball when I remembered these last couple FIVB beach events.  This week (October 4th - 9th) the men conclude their 2011 tour with the last stop in Agadir, Morocco.  I know some of the Canadian men's teams had planned on going to Morocco, but the current registered teams list on fivb.org doesn't show any registered yet.  Anyways, here are some teams to lookout for.

Men's Teams To Watch In Morocco

China Xu-Wu
Brazil Pedro-Ferramenta
Brazil Marcio Araujo-Benjamin
Brazil Cunha-Ricardo
Germany Brink-Reckermann
USA Fuerbringer-Lucena

Thursday is here and that means that we are into main draw action over in The Netherlands in this stop of the 2011 FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour.  The HP Beach Open sees only one Canadian team remaining in this tournament and that is the women's team of Marie Andree Lessard and Annie Martin.  As you would recall, they have direct entry into the main draw thanks to a wild card.  Because this is just a regular open tournament and not a grand slam, the main draw is a double elimination format.  Matches, results, and live streams below.
