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.
