A little recap from last year to get the vibes going 🎉
BEACH VOLLEYBALL TRAINING
Time to push your abilities to the limit, and dive head first into a series of training sessions led by our top class coaches that are sure to leave you feeling like a pro by the end of the camp. Our training programme, created by our head coaches, will ensure that you learn new techniques and tactics and grow as a player from Day 1.
Ready to get starstruck? Our coaches consist of Olympians, World Tour players/coaches and national tour players from all around the globe. So you are guaranteed to learn from the best of the best.
No matter what level you play at, we’ve got you! We cater to all levels and pride ourselves in the fact that our sessions will push you to become better players whether you’re a beginner or elite player.
What would be the point of training, if you can’t immediately apply your new found elite skills, and use them to beat out all the other campers in our daily epic tournaments? Nearly every afternoon we host a variety of different style tournaments, where you can play with your regular partner or team up with someone you just met at camp in a fun and competitive environment.
Most tournaments will have two divisions to cater for all levels of player, so no worries, even if you’ve only just started playing… you can still get your chance to play on centre court and fight for a medal and our awesome Deep Dish prizes.
Tournaments we host at the camp include:
Scramble - Get to know lots of different people. Players with the most wins go through to the finals!
Mixed Pairs - One male and one female per team (2 divisions)
ACE - 6 a-side with a twist
Portugal Camp Championships - Where champions are made. Single gender tournament (2 divisions)
Beach Battle - One men's pair and one women's pair make up a team in this unique format.
SOCIALS & BEACH FUN
Of course, camp wouldn't be fun without a bit of time to socialise outside of playing beach volleyball and getting to know your fellow campers. We have a range of fun activities you can get involved with:
Morning Yoga - Get your daily dose of Zen, and kick off your morning with an incredible yoga session in paradise
Beach Games - Show that you rule the beach in more than just beach volleyball! Play Cornhole, Spikeball, Crossnet and more!
Exhibition time - Grab a drink, find a seat and watch a showcase of our awesome coaches as they compete against each other in exhibition games
