School owner and Volleyball WA beach events officer Marty Suan said teams were ‘getting pumped’ to compete at the Australian Junior Beach Volleyball Championships in Adelaide from January 11 to 14.

‘We’re really excited about how far our under-15s team will go this year,’ Mr Suan said.

‘The last tournament was the first time under-15s could compete and we took out bronze, so it will be a real thrill to see these young kids show off their skills.’

Mr Suan said he was proud to run the only recognised beach volleyball club in WA with business partner and well-known coach Rory Read.

‘We get to see the sunset over the ocean every night ” it’s definitely not a bad job to have,’ he said.
