Although beach volleyball is no stranger to Hamburg thanks to the hard work, dedication and enthusiasm of organizer Frank Mackerodt, last year’s beach volleyball extravaganza at the Rothenbaum was the first as a Swatch Major Series – as two beach-loving forces combined.

The stadium’s iconic roof structure and 13,000-capacity help make the 2016 smart Major Hamburg one of the most memorable tournaments of last summer. The famous stadium is steeped in tennis history having hosted hundreds of top-class tournaments, but between August 22-27 the clay court will be replaced by almost 2,000 tons of golden sand!
