Antwerp

Next to the river the Schelde, with a lot of history and with one of the biggest ports in Europe, Antwerp is the perfect spot for the King of the Court Crown Series!

Antwerp boasts a long and illustrious sporting history. It welcomed the first World Gymnastics Championships, in 1903, hosted the 1920 Summer Olympics, was the European Capital of Sport in 2013 and its streets have felt the tires of many a cycle race, including the Tour de France.

It is also the core of the Belgium beach volleyball scene, with a host of indoor and outdoor courts and clubs for the city’s players to set and spike to their hearts content: Even the Olympian Liesbet Van Breedam has a beach volleyball school in Hoevenen, a neighbourhood of Antwerp. Also, did you know that the sand used for the courts at the 2004 Summer Olympic Games, in Greece, were shipped all the way from Mul, in Belgium. That’s how connected Belgium is to beach volleyball.

Antwerp was once Europe’s riches city and the continent’s second largest conurbation and remains a hub of trade and culture. This long and illustrious history has left a rich horde of off-court activities to entertain the players and spectators of King of the Court. Check out the art collections of local silverback artists Rubens, Van Dyck and Jordaens; marvelling at the architectural manifestations of the city’s rich lineage or take a stroll through Zurenborg, one of Europe’s best preserved Belle Époque precincts.

But whatever you get up to in Antwerp, don’t forget to pay your dues to the city’s mythical resident giant, Antigoon, or as legend has it you might find yourself missing a hand. It could seriously impede your game!
