An international beach volleyball event was kicked off last night in the southern province of Cần Thơ.
The tournament, which is organised at the Hậu Riverbank Park, has 13 teams from seven countries competing.
Teams will compete for a total prize of US$15,000, in which the winner will take home $3,000.
According to Phạm Văn Luận, deputy director of the local Culture, Sports and Tourism Department, it was the first time such an international event was being held in the city.
The organisers have carefully prepared for the event, especially with a VNĐ2.5 billion budget to build sand courts and stands which meet international standards.
The matches will start today and the final is scheduled for Saturday. – VNS
