Beachvolleyball as added value for indoor volleyball players objectified!
Many words have been written about the benefits of beach volleyball for indoor volleyball players. The added value that beach volleyball can be for the performance of indoor volleyball players is proven every year post-'beach season', when players return to indoor volleyball, and demonstrate a noticeable difference in jumping power, speed on court, insight and commitment to the ball.
It is also a fact that the atmosphere that beach volleyball entails can add value to the experience of volleyball players everywhere. The 'vibe', the camaraderie, the inviting setting.
Beachvolley Europe and Lizards Leuven-Lubbeek set out to test this theory in it's joint venture "The Lizards Project BEACHR" experiment.
