Biography I started KvW-beach in April 2015, with my partner Tom van Walle. We are the first professional beach volleyball team of Belgium. We started out without a coach or indoor facilities for winter training but in 2016 built our own indoor gym to practice in. Step by step we’re building a beach volleyball structure in Belgium with the help of the federation. In 2017 we partnered with head coach Michiel van der Kuip, who will hopefully take us to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Opinion KotC format King of the Court is an awesome format and I’m really looking forward to play in the tournament. It will be entertaining for the crowd and a great way to show the spectators what beach volleyball is all about.
