Antonella volunteered last year for LBVC and organised our first Aperitif Night Tournament at SideOut Beach. In Italy this style of tournament is a regular occurrence. Even though the weather gods were not kind and there was a heavy rain for most of the tournament it was enjoyed by the London Beach Volleyball Community who are not afraid of a bit of rain.
