Bahrain A have taken the International Aqaba Beach Volleyball Championship after beating Lebanon in the final, 2-0.
The team of Ali Yacoub and Mohammad Marhoun took the title 21-18, 21-19 against Lebanon’s Jan Abi Raheed and Joe Kazzi in the final held at the Jordan Intercontinental Hotel.
Bahrain A qualified to the final after beating Bahrain B, 2-1, while Lebanon secured their place after beating Egypt, 2-0.
Bahrain B then beat Egypt, 2-0, in the bronze medal play-off.
The teams travelled to Jordan for the tournament as a preparation for the Arab Beach Volleyball Championships to be held in Oman next month, with Jordan taking two teams.
“It was great for our players to participate here in Aqaba to gain some experience ahead of next month,” said Jordan coach, Ismael Tawfeeq.
“Lebanon is seventh in Asia and Bahrain are the Arab champions, so we came up against some good players this weekend that will help us to improve.”
Jordan A finished in fifth but the B team was forced to pull out after the group stage due to an injury to Ahmad Al Awamleh.
