June 12, 2019 – June 16, 2019 all-day
The Warsaw 4-star is the last stop of the beach volleyball world elite before the FIVB World Championships in Hamburg (Germany) will start end of June. The US$300,000 Warsaw Open qualifiers will be played on Wednesday with pool play following on Thursday. Elimination rounds will take place Friday and Saturday, the medal matches on Saturday for the women and on Sunday for the men.
Defending champions on the men’s side are local heroes Piotr Kantor/Bartosz Losiak who will not be able to defend their title due to Losiak’s injury. Therefore Piotr Kantor is teaming up with Mariusz Prudel. The men’s competition will feature most of the top teams such as Norwegian Vikings Mol/Sorum or AVP New York winnners Dalhausser/Lucena.
For the women, beach volleyball gypsy Brandie Wilkerson will return with her Canadian partner Heather Bansley after Brandie had joined forces with American Brooke Sweat at last week’s AVP New York Gold Series event. The Canadians will try to defend their Warsaw 2018 title against Jinjiang winners Brooke Sweat and Kerri Walsh as well as the Brazilians top teams Ana Patricia/Rebecca and Agatha/Duda who won bronze last year.
