Three Canadian beach volleyball teams qualified for the main draw of the Sao Paulo Grand Slam on Tuesday in Brazil.

On the men’s side, Grant O’Gorman (Scarborough, ON) and Sam Pedlow (Barrie, ON) beat the Austrian team of Dressler-Kunert (22-24, 22-24). Comox, British Columbia’s Maverick Hatch and Christian Redmann of Oro Station, ON, also qualified after a 2-0 (21-9, 21-14) win over Del Coto and Bianchi of Argentina.
