Beach-Showdown in the Hanseatic City!

In 2019, the Beach Volleyball World Championships will again be held in Hamburg - in front of 13,000 enthusiastic fans in the tennis stadium at Rothenbaum. 96 men's and women's teams will compete this year in the hope of going home with the world championship title. You don't have to pay admission to watch the sporting event, but for all those who want to be on the safe side, there are also tickets on sale. 

The Overture was a Spectacle Already

Before the gates of the Rothenbaum stadium open on the 28th of June, World Cup defending champion Laura Ludwig and her partner Margareta Kozuch transformed the Elbe into the venue for a maritime match against Marketá Sluková and Barbora Hermannová. The floating court on the Elbe, directly in front of the Elbphilharmonie, was not only for fans of the sport a real sports event of excellence. 75 tons of sand had to be loaded onto the floating pontoon in order to offer the players a field of play. However, the beach volleyball players first had to get used to the court of a different kind: "It was a bit difficult to keep the balance because everything was moving. But it was great fun playing volleyball on the Elbe," Kozuch said. Despite fears that a lot of balls would go overboard, the players only lost two balls to the Elbe. After this opening, in which fun was in the center of attention, the focus is now on the upcoming World Championship. "I hope that things will go even better at the World Cup than at the shooting and things went very well there already. That gives us hope for the World Cup. We definitely want a better ranking than the ninth place two years ago in Vienna," concluded Sluková.
