The National Footvolley Association hosted the first tournament of the year in Deerfield Beach this last weekend (March 18-19). The players brought their best games and performed extremely well on both days.
On Saturday ,Danni, 12 years old alongside with Romulo Gomes took the trophy home after defeating Marquinhos and Wanderson in the final of the division B. Despite the size and lack of experience, Danni showed to all the spectators and fans that even a 12 year old can compete against the big dogs.
On Sunday, the competition was a little more intense with a lot of great players. The tournament received the 3 time best beach soccer player in the world, Jorginho and his partner Fred. They fought hard till the end and took the 3rd place in the competition. In the final Diogo Nanni and Diego Ferreira played against nothing less than Fernando Plentz and Carlinhos. It was a great game but the quality of Plentz and his partners made the difference in the final stretch!
The National Footvolley Association was extremely excited with the outcome of the event and is already looking forward to the next one in April, in the sands of Miami Beach. The event had the following sponsors: Only Coconut Water, 18k Watches, Rio Pet Spa, Pro Coluna, SPS, GMS Tour and Ketlog.
