April 23, 2015

With just 50 days to go, it is with great pleasure that we can announce that Chris Gregory and Jake Sheaf have been selected to represent Team GB in the 1st European Games from 12-28 June 2015 in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Chris and Jake are the number one Beach Volleyball pair in England and have been competing in European and World tour events. Their international results placed them in the top 30 ranked European teams which has earned their qualification spot for the Baku European Games, their selection for Team GB and the opportunity to compete among the top 32 teams in Europe. Competing in Baku provides a superb opportunity to test themselves against the best Beach Volleyball nations in Europe including Latvia, Poland, Germany, the Netherlands and Russia.

The European Games are the first ever major multi-sport competition solely for European athletes. Over 6,000 athletes from 50 European nations will be in action across 17 days of competition. The Games follow in the footsteps of other similar continental events in Asia and America. Team GB will send a team of 153 athletes across 19 Olympic and non Olympic sports.
