Australia’s leading men’s beach volleyball teams are in Thailand as they prepare to take on the FIVB Beach Volleyball AVC Continental Cup that kicks off tonight.
Damien Schumann/Chris McHugh and Zac Schubert/Max Guehrer will take part in the semi-finals at the AVC Continental Cup as both sides aim to secure one of the final spots on offer for the Tokyo Olympic Games.
Both sides are into the semi-finals, with their opponents to be determined from matches underway. The winner of the AVC Continental Cup progresses through to the final that will be held from 25-27 June 2021.
Australia head into the Tournament seeded in first position with teams from Japan, Kazakhstan, Philippines and Lebanon all set to take part.
2018 Commonwealth Games Champions Schumann & McHugh will be among the favourites showing solid form throughout the 2020-2021 Australian Beach Volleyball Tour (ABVT) where they were undefeated and took out the tour.
