The first African Beach Games commence tomorrow (14 June). The events will take place on the Santa Maria beach, on Sal island, close to the Hilton Hotel. Participants from 42 countries will take part in 11 different sports. Cape Verde is honoured to have been chosen as the venue for the first such event. The sports include beach tennis, beach volleyball, swimming, rowing and kite surfing. Almost 1000 athletes will be involved.
