The Hague Open – Netherlands

Nummerdor-Schuil have become home town heroes winnning a second title in as many events and becoming only the fourth team in FIVB history to become back to back champions by winning the Hague Open in the Netherlands.

They won the final against Herrera-Gavira of Spain 2-1 (21-17, 18-21, 15-10) in just under an hour. Harley Alison finished third.

In the Womens tournament it was Brazil, Brazil, Brazil. Larissa-Juliana beating Talita-Antonelli in the final. Vivian-Vieira third.

The New Zealand boys may as well have been playing at Manly, beating Hoyer-Soderberg then Heyer-Heuscher before being knocked out into 13th place by Kubala-Benes P. and in the women’s Blundell-Scarlett finished a respectable 9th.

The good news for Australia was that Boehm-McHugh broke through into the main draw. There were no Aussies in the womens tournament.
