European Beach Volley Ball Championships in Blackpool 2009

September 11th until the 14th 2009 Blackpool hosted the European Beach Vollyball Championships.
I attended this event and with permission was able to photograph it.
I had never attended a Vollyball match before so did not really know what to expect, I did not have a clue about the rules or the regulations but was eager to learn.
It was great that Blackpool was chosen to host such a Championships and i hope that they are able able to host it again in 2010..

Some of these images do display people in Swim suits and I must stress that I was allowed to photograph them, it was a very difficult job, but somebody had to do it.. ;)

I hope you enjoy the collection that I have selected for you all on Live In Blackpool

Day 1

It was a bit overcast and people feared that the event could be affected by rain, but it stayed away and the players were able to start the competition..

































Day 2

The Sun came out to play and it was an amazing atmosphere.. :(





















The Dancers entertained between time outs..  ;D















Day 3 Finals Day

The Stadium was packed all day for the different games..











TV Interviews took place Live In Blackpool on SKY and Eurosport..
