Beach Volleyball at the Split – Caye Caulker style!

On August 20, 2012 in Caye Caulker, News

Broaster and Chico - the eventual winners!! Luis and Tico - the battle hungry second place.

Even if you only half like beach volleyball this weekend was a resounding success.  The Lazy Lizard and Crystal sponsored a beach volleyball competition that entertained us all weekend and we have to thank them for that.

Not only was the island packed with tourists, but locals from far and wide came to cheer on their favorite doubles act in both women and mens competitions.

With six teams entering the mens competition (three from Caye Caulker and three from Belize) this commenced first on Saturday and the finals took place on Sunday.  For the womens, only four teams entered and one team from Caye Caulker their competition took place on Sunday.

The brave ladies - with Seni Rosado, from CC, on the far left.The finals at sunset!

For those who may not be in Belize in the moment please understand that this weekend was very much about the sweltering heat and the beating hot sun.  It can be commented that only the foolhardy or the immensely fearless and physically fit that would even consider entering this competition and therefore you have to take your hats off to each and every competitor!

Needless to say, by the time Sunday’s sunset drew in all those partaking in the event looked very much sandy, sweaty and weary!  However as in all these scenarios there has to be a winner – for the womens competition Belize City took the trophy, with our own Seni Rosado coming in a well fought third – well done ladies.  However, for the mens competition the finals was hard fought and truthfully extremely close and both teams were Caye Caulker locals.

Chico and Broaster just managed to beat Luis and Tico in the third and final set which was a nail biting and end to end stuff – thrilling for all those watching.  Chico impressed all onlookers who are not familiar with his volleyball prowess – he will never look the same sitting behind the BTL desk anymore after we have seen him on that volleyball court!

Thank you for all those taking part and especially the sponsors – the Lazy Lizard and Crystal Water – good weekend had by all!!
