It has been an incredible week here in Stavanger Major with great surprises for some nations, as well as upsets for others. It only goes to show that nothing is certain in beach volleyball, which keeps us on our toes all the way to the final match point.

By now, both players and spectators have first hand experience in Norway’s forceful and dynamic weather, even in the early summer. The days of competing has given us burning sun from clear skies, howling winds, sleet, hot summer days, pouring rain, and everything in between. Challenging as it can be, it also creates an extra spike to the mix, adding some impulsiveness into Stavanger Major for a truly exciting formula.

Extra layers

The players have dealt with this through extra layers of lycra, especially at the start of the match, according to local coordinator at Stavanger Major Yngvild Schei.

“It is important to always dress up thick and thorough before the match, then gradually remove layers and not the other way around.”
