High sun. Excruciating heat. Sand and sweat. Pure excitement. Beach volleyball was never as glamorous as its sister sport, the indoor volleyball, but it definitely has its own raw charm. Thanks to Nestea for bringing the beach volleyball on a higher level. The Nestea beach volley is now an accredited tournament of the Philippine Volleyball Federation. I’m not sure if it is the first of it’s kind but I do believe that Nestea deserves it after 11 years of continuous support for the support. Hearing that the Luzon eliminations of the even is going to be held in the province of Cavite got me so excited because it’s going to be staged in the man-made island-resort, Island Cove. And it’s very accessible to me! So there I went and witnessed the beach volley action.

NCAA Beach Volleyball (Day 1): SBC defeated SSC-R

Posted in NCAA Beach Volleyball

January 20, 2008 (Sunday). It was the opening games for the 83rd NCAA Beach Volleyball tournament held at La Salle Greenhills. Are there any other places where people can play beach volleyball out there? There are three divisions for the tournament namely: Women’s Seniors, Men’s Seniors, and Men’s Juniors. A fellow amateur photographer and I originally planned to watch the tandem of Laurence Ann Latigay and Margarita Pepito (the elder sister of libero Mary Jane) in the Women’s division but by the time we arrived at the venue, it was already the Men’s games being played.

I’m not too familiar with the teams and players. Was able to witness the Men’s Seniors game between Christian Allan Aguila and Leonel Evan Laraya of San Beda College against Anecito Habagat and Girald Heraldo of San Sebastian College-Recoletors. Here are some of the beach volleyball action photos during the match:
