Olympian Mo Glover said, “This is the first time that there has been any resource for the beach game, here or abroad. It is exactly what the beach community has been asking for.
“The book takes the players and coaches through all the basics before progressing to more advanced techniques and tactics for those performing at the higher end of the game.
“It is a fantastic resource for anyone involved, or wanting to get involved with beach volleyball.”
Glover competed for GB at the Atlanta games in 1996, when beach volleyball made its Olympic debut.
Mo Glover: “I’m encouraged to see Volleyball England embracing the development of a beach volleyball resource to improve the sport in this country.”
Full-time beach volleyball coach and author of the book, Denise Austin said “I am passionate about advancing the beach game and have been writing this guidebook for a while, trying to condense over 30 years of coaching and playing the sport.
“With only two players on the court, the game is very different physically and mentally to the indoor game and the manual focuses on all these elements.”
Beach Volleyball; a guidebook to the game can be purchased from the Volleyball England shop for £14.99. Click here to grab your copy now.
