IFBT-USA’s Oktoberfest Beach Tennis Tournament

was a great success! This was the first IFBT event to

be held in the USA, with a full tour on the way. Some of

the best teams in the world participated over the

weekend of Oct 24-25, with 6 different categories. The

World Cup event included representation from Puerto

Rico, Italy, France, Peru, Ecuador, Czech Republic,

Columbia, Venezuela, Germany and the USA.

During the event, athletes from all over the world took

part in the extreme action sport which is known to

combine the sports of Tennis, Volleyball and

Badminton into one. The excitement took place on

standard sized Beach Volleyball courts, measuring

8x16 meters, with the net set at the height of five 5’7”.

Slightly depressurized tennis balls and beach tennis

rackets (or paddles) made out of graphite were used.

The players battled it out from sunrise to sunset

participating in various categories that were offered

such as a similar version of Beach Tennis that is

played with a regular tennis racket. However, for this

version, the net was raised to 5’10. The rules remained

the same in all categories offered, which included: 1

set match with 7 game set, tennis scoring (15, 30, 40…)

but no ad on deuce, the ball cannot bounce on the

sand, only one serve allowed and lets always count.

Prior to the event, Instructor Certifications were given

by Gianni Bellettini, President of the IFBT and creator

of the sport Beach Tennis. Amongst those certified to

teach Beach Tennis in the USA were: Adrienne Cerra,

President of IFBT-USA, Rick Simeon, VP of IFBT-USA

and Beach Tennis Gold Medalist World Champ, Miguel

A. Hernandez Zapata, President of Beach Tennis

Puerto Rico, Nidia Ramirez, Dania/Hollywood Beach

Representative, and Johnny Lafontante, Fitness

Instructor and Beach Tennis Representative.

The weekend commenced with morning rain on

Saturday, and then quickly cleared to become a

beautiful, sunny weekend with temperatures in the

90’s. The level of play was excellent as the players

competed for ranking points, cash and prizes. In

addition, during the event, IFBT-USA raised funds to

support the Susan G. Komen Foundation for the Cure

of Breast Cancer and also sent out a special thank

you to the City of Deerfield Beach, all the foreign

teams who traveled to participate and all the

sponsors who helped make the event possible.
