Warm-up games mean volleyball tournament is good to go

THE sand is soft and the grandstands are ready for the biggest volleyball tournament ever held on the Fraser Coast.

Seafront Oval had its first taste of competitive volleyball on Friday as event sponsors took to the sand in the lead-up to Saturday's games.

The council and Bank of Queensland won Friday's matches and will go head-to-head on Saturday in front of a big expected crowd at 3.30pm.

Volleyball Queensland events co-ordinator Damien Searle said Friday's matches were put on to thank those who made it the event possible.

"To be able to come out to a beautiful place like Hervey Bay and put on a beach volleyball tournament ... it doesn't get any better than that," Mr Searle said.

Saturday's program runs from 10am to 8pm with the crowd able to join the pros on court throughout the day.

Sunday's program starts at 10am with the palyer presentations scheduled for 3.30pm.
