The tournament takes place on 28 June 2016 at Barn Elms Sports Centre, London and will kick off at 16.30 with some world class support from GB team members Zara Dampney, and Shauna Mullen.
Once the training is complete the CEF team, supported by supplier ARMEG, will get the chance to showcase their newly acquired skills as they step into action on court against 11 other industry teams. Each team will be joined on the court by a member of the GB Women’s Beach Volleyball Olympic Squad as a player to keep them in line during the 15 minute game.
Geoff Thompson, CEF group manager for London North West and team captain, says: ‘We are excited to take on the Beach Volleyball challenge this summer, and we are very much looking forward to meeting Zara and Shauna. My team promises me they are training hard but only time will tell if we make it through to the final.
‘Win or lose it’s all for a great cause and if we don’t make it through to the final we can still enjoy the sporting entertainment! The important thing is that by taking part we are ensuring that the Electrical Industries Charity can continue to help people in our industry when they need it most.’
