Play to your team’s strengths.

Women's Health (South Africa) - - YOUR BODY -

Beach volleyball de­mands a great amount of trust. Games are played in pairs – as op­posed to in­door volleyball, where teams com­prise six play­ers – and the co­or­di­na­tion in­volved means you’ll need to form a bond with some­one and com­mu­ni­cate with them through body lan­guage. Be­jancke’s an in­tro­vert; her part­ner’s the op­po­site. But in­stead of clash­ing, their dif­fer­ent per­son­al­ity types com­ple­ment each other. And af­ter more than two years play­ing to­gether, they’ve learnt how to pep each other up when a game is go­ing badly. “I have to mo­ti­vate her and say, ‘We can do this, don’t give up on me now; it’s only the two of us on the court’,” says Be­jancke. To­gether, they make the per­fect team.
