WINDHOEK, Mar. 16 – Bank Windhoek has sponsored the Namibia Volleyball Federation (NVF) to host the 2018 Bank Windhoek Namibia Beach Volleyball Open and the 2018 Bank Windhoek DOC Open Tournament, taking place on 24 and 25 March 2018 at the Mole Beach and The Dome, in Swakopmund.
This year’s edition sees the NVF Bank Windhoek NAM Open and NVF Bank Windhoek DOC Tournament coinciding on the same weekend and presenting the best of both forms of volleyball.
“It will be two spectacular, action-filled days, making the coastal region the place to be for Namibian volleyball lovers. The Mole Beach is the perfect setting for a beach volleyball tournament and in the past years, we have been successfully cooperating with The Dome as venue for 6-a-side volleyball. We are very pleased to continue the collaboration for 2018, creating the perfect setting for this great tournament,” said Hillary Imbuwa, President of the Namibian Volleyball Federation.
The NAM Open will cater for young and old as there will be categories for 2-a-side Men, Women, Youth (U17), Social and Mixed 4-a-side.
Participants can look forward to rubbing shoulders with some of Namibia’s top beach volleyball players, such as the 2018 Tropizone Aqua Mixed Grand Slam winners, Rosi Hennes and Fabian Pfeifer and 2017 King of the Beach Champion, Daniel Pfeifer.
The deadline for registration is 22 March 2018 and entry forms can be obtained from James Verrinder, Director: Beach Volleyball at email@example.com or Cell: 081 455 4571.

Being an open tournament, any team (league team or social team) can register to participate.

The defending champions from last year, the Windhoek based Khomas NDF Volleyball men’s team as well as the SKW ladies team will try their level best to fight off the competition to once again secure their spot on the podium.
