TRINIDAD and Tobago’s top two pairs will be in action from today when the 2015 NORCECA (North, Central America and the Caribbean) Beach Volleyball Tour resumes with the second leg in the Dominican Republic.
Fabian Whitfield and Daneil Williams also contested the opening leg in Cayman Islands two months ago, but Ayana Dyette and Makila Davidson will be making their seasonal bow at the level.
The three-day tournament takes on additional significance for the quartet. It will be their final competitive preparation for next month’s Pan American Games in Canada. The two pairs competed in a tournament on the world tour a couple weeks ago in Florida, USA, but failed to make it to the main draw.
Early last month, Williams and Whitfield led T&T to the gold medal in the CAZOVA (Caribbean Zonal Volleyball Association) Beach Championships and a place in the second round of regional qualifying for next year’s Olympic Games in Brazil.
Dyette and Davidson only started playing together in March and are unbeaten from five tournaments at home.
