One Major down, three Majors and one World Tour Finals to go!

After the massive success of our first Swatch Major Series stop in Hamburg last week, attention is now fully focused in getting Gstaad ready to rock.

Believe it or not, it’s only 20 days until we roll up in the picturesque Swiss village in the Alps and turn the sleepy alpine retreat into a bombastic beach volleyball paradise.

The much-anticipated tournament has extra spice this year as the pools for this summer’s Olympic Games in Rio are drawn – but before all of that we’ve got to turn the Gstaadium in a venue fit for thousands of crazy beach volleyball fans to do their thing.

Hard work in Switzerland is already in full swing and, as our pictures show, the Gstaadium is beginning to take shape! Usually an ice rink in the winter months, we’re dumping a ton of sand and building an arena around the site which will be packed to rafters to ensure another legendary sparking atmosphere.

We’ll keep you updated with how the preparation is coming along, but if you can’t remember how good Gstaad was last year we suggest you watch this video on our YouTube channel!

See you soon Gstaad!
