A big congratulations to all the players who took part in the Renault National Beach Volleyball Series! We were honoured to be the official apparel partner for the 2014 season and thoroughly enjoyed working closely with the players on designing the best technical teamwear kit the Series has seen to date!

It’s been a big few months for us having toured with the Series across South Australia, Queensland, Western Australia, Victoria and NSW. We wish all of the athletes well in their journey towards RIO 2016, and we look forward to continuing our support with Volleyball Australia.
