We’re pumped to announce that Great Britain Olympic hopefuls Jess Grimson and Vicky Palmer are playing against Greek rivals Peyianna Metheniti and Peny Karagkouni at the Revo International Women’s Sand Slam, sponsored by Barnaby’s Opticians, at the Asahi British Beach Polo Championships at Sandbanks Beach in Dorset, England on Friday, July 10th.
This is the sixth year the Polo Championships has featured beach volleyball, but this is the Championships’ first women’s beach volleyball event. The slam brings together two of the world’s top teams, and it promises to be an exciting match—Team Greece recently beat TeamGB at an Olympic qualifier, and Grimson and Palmer are eager to win this rematch.
Watch these world-class athletes battle it out on the sand at Poole Harbor on the beautiful Dorset coast, and then enjoy the rest of the afternoon at the 4x4/polo pony charity race, polo match, and Sandpolo beach party.
Tickets are going fast, so be sure to secure your spot at one of the most exciting sporting events of the summer. Learn more about the Asahi British Beach Polo Championships here, and be sure to follow Grimson and Palmer on Twitter.
