Good news for Beachvolley in Luxembourg

There are some really great news to announce in these last days of 2008 - the FLVB (Fédération Luxembourgeoise de Volleyball) has found an agreement with a group of motivated beachvolley-players and a new Beachvolley-Commission has been formed inside the structure of the FLVB.

After some weeks, the first results of the new FLVB-Beach-Commission are already visible:

- a brand new FLVB-Internetpage for everything that concerns Beachvolley has been created. This site will officially been launched by the FLVB for the Novotel Cup the next week-end, but is already online. To have a look, just click on the following link:

- we have got official confirmation that discussions between the ministry of sports and the city of Esch/Alzette are under way, in order to construct an Indoor-Beachvolleyball-Hall. A working group has been formed and Norma Zambon, as a member of the FLVB-Beach-Commission and well known athlete, will be consulted as Beachvolley-expert.

- the date for the 2009 National Beachvolley-Championship can already be confirmed. After 2008, where no championship coud be organised, for 2009, you can book the week-end of the 11th and 12th July in your agendas for this event. Location and organization details are still in discussion, but more information will be available soon.

So, I invite you to have a look at to meet the new Beach-team of the FLVB. For any questions about Beachvolley, they will always be at your service. For any beach-news, this new site will be the right place to get serious and actual information.

As you noticed, my blog was not updated as regularly as it used to be, because a lot of work had to be done for the new FLVB Internet page. But I will keep it alive to give you my personal view of the small luxemburgish Beachvolley world (with some crackling rumours, who knows) - the first adress for brand hot news will be the new FLVB-Beach-site.

I wish you a lot of fun on tomorrow's New Year's Eve, a healthy and happy 2009 and a lot of success in Beachvolley.

See you soon on a Beach-Court - spring is not so far away as you think,

Happy New Year,

New homepage of the team Schneider-Zambon

Our one and only international women-team has a new homepage.

Looks quite good, and you can find there a lot of information about the team and their tournaments, as well as about beachvolley activities in Luxembourg.

Have a look !!

Update of the Beachcourt List

The two beachcourts in Weiler, available in Summer, for some time already, have been added in the list. For those who want to go there, Weiler is a small location between Hosingen and Vianden, in the north of the country.

Every year, a beachvolley-tournament for Hobby-Players is also organised, end of July.

Season 2008 almost finished in Luxembourg

Hello all,

it's true that over the summer I didn't have a lot of time to spend to my blog, to announce you some more beachvolley news. But I suppose, you were also training a lot and playing tournaments on the weekends and you didn't have the time to sit in front of your computer.

I definitely had the feet in the sand quite every day :-))

I hope you enjoyed your beachvolley season and you had the results you expected. But first of all that you had a lot of fun. As every summer, I got in contact with some new people and I realized that the beachvolley family in Luxembourg is still growing.

There is a good old slogan in sport that says "After the season is before the season" and this is especially true for beachvolleyball, where you have to organize, with your partner, your trainings, your tournaments and perhaps your beachvolley-travels of the next season.

That's a lot of work and you must be careful to start in time.

Autumn and winter months are the best therefore and so the preparation of the season 2009, for me, will start in October.

I hope I can give you, over the winter, once again some interesting news, some useful tips and some precious contact adresses to participate in beachcamps, tournaments and other events. (Don't forget: 2009 is the year of the BEACHVOLLEY WORLDCHAMIONSHIP in Stavanger from 26th June to 5th July).

But for the moment, I will give myself two weeks of holidays in Corsica and I'll be back again to organizational work for the 2009-season, in October.

See you in October !!
Perhaps there will already be some very interesting news ;-)
