[St Andrews Mixed Event Results 2013]

Sunday morning brought light rain, however that didn't put off our hardy bunch of beach volleyball mixed teams who all turned up bright and early and eager to play.

This is the first time we have managed to run this event and it was a great success so will become a regular fixture the day after King and Queen of the Beach.

In the mixed 4-a-side event we had 4 teams who battled it out for the much coveted prizes, playing a round-robin series of matches to seed the teams then semi-finals and finals.

In the round-robin matches, Team Skittles came out top seeds, beating every team to face Panthers in the semi-final. Skittles won that 21-9, 21-12. The second semi-final saw Saints play A Tribute to Kevin Sorbo, which Saints took 21-10, 21-14.

The final saw Saints overturn the morning defeat to beat Skittles and take the inaugural Mixed St Andrews 4-a-side title.

In the 2-a-side mixed event, some of the KQOB participants the day before stayed to party and to play in the mixed event the next day. There was some great beach volleyball on display, and some close matches. The final saw local youngsters Colin and Shelly Paterson take on Mariusz Chudzik and Lilian Lieber from Aberdeen. There were some great plays and pickups from both teams, however the consistency and power of the Aberdeen pair saw them through to win the match and the tournament 21-14, 21-16.

Well done to everyone for braving the elements and for staying to help take down equipment afterwards. Looking forward to next year already!
