UPDATE: All but one men's team (Redmann/Saxton) and two women's teams (Lessard/Martin and Bansley/Maloney) lost their first match. Regardless, all teams will play a second match today.

FIVB: Quebec Country Quota (Live Video)

Fivb quebec country quota

So I am currently in the air on my way to Quebec City, Canada for the next stop on the 2011 FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour.  Quebec City is the only North American stop on the FIVB this year so many Canadian and American teams are utilizing this event as an opportunity to gain some international experience and maybe even get a few entry points to their names.  Sandwiched between grand slam events overseas, some of the teams that regularly compete on the tour are skipping the Quebec event in favour of a week off.  Country quota matches take place on Tuesday July 19th with many Canadian teams and a few American teams taking part.  As always, check back to Kill on Two for scores, results and live streams.

Canadian Women's Teams in Country Quota

Canada Altomare-Humana-Paredes
Canada Billings-Vlcek
Canada Broder-Voth
Canada Cowley-Mingay
Canada Martin-Schaerli
Canada Savoie-Rancourt
Canada Cross-Whitaker

UPDATE: All action is done for the day. Results are down the page after the jump.
