Five fabulous hours in store inside the Rothenbaum
Set an alarm and clear your diary from 2pm onwards on Thursday! The glitz and glamour of the smart Major Hamburg is going up a notch!
Why? Because the Center Court is going to be the place to be as the Rothenbaum Stadium makes its much-anticipated debut with six sensational matches guaranteed to get the blood pumping.
First up at 2pm are German qualifiers Schümann/Thole, who never thought they would be in a position to dig and dive on the sand on Center Court after their dramatic qualification on Tuesday. They take on imposing Polish pair Fijalek/Prudel.
What follows then is a feast of beach volleyball action for the German fans, as four back-to-back matches feature teams from the host nation. To say the first two games are important would be an understatement. They are massive for one reason and two words: Olympic qualification!
Once all of that drama is done and dusted the action keeps coming: top German men team Böckermann/Flüggen face number one seeds Alison/Bruno of Brazil.
Seriously, what a line-up! Three cheers for the event organizers – I wonder who they are….!
So, see you at 2pm, yeah?
