Keep cool at #WorldChampsVienna

It’s a sizzler out there – stay safe

The FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships presented by A1 has turned up the heat. Literally. Vienna is hot hot hot! Morecast predicts soaring summer temperatures rising well into the 80s (30s in Celsius). We are writing this piece to save lives. It’s actually a public service.

Because even though it’s so hot, it shouldn’t stop you from enjoying all the excitement the sport and the event has to offer - you just have to do it responsibly. Here are your five tips to keep you cool in this heat.
 

Drink Drink Drink

Relax guys, we mean water. It is very important to stay hydrated during extremely hot weather. Always keep a bottle of water with you or nearby – we wouldn’t want you to get dehydrated, now would we? Looking for water, there are several water stations located in and around the Swatch Beach Village offering you refreshment for free. What’s that? Free water? *I’m running there immediately whilst not expending too much energy because I wouldn’t want to dehydrate myself on the way to hydrate myself.*

Swim Swim Swim

The Organics Lounge in the Swatch Beach Village has a swimming pool, a deck and of course – delicious Red Bull drinks to also… refresh you. Laze on an inflatable flamingo or unicorn (whatever tickles your fancy), dip your toes in and people watch. Nothing better than swimming on a beautiful but HOT day.

Cream Cream Cream

Like BAE and WCW, SPF is going to become a thing soon - #SPFMonday #SPFFunday. But guys, before we digress any further we need to emphasize that the sun, as amazing as it is, can be quite dangerous. When spending time in the sun for an extended period (actually anytime you’re in the sun), you should protect yourself by lathering on sun cream. Don’t wait to go to a spa – start your pampering early whilst also ensuring you’re protected against skin cancer. It’s a win-win.
 

Lounge Lounge Lounge

The Swatch Beach Village is filled with spots with lounge chairs and umbrellas where you can put your feet up, take a load off and chill out - in the shade! In the shade! That’s right because shade is prime property.  Get down to the Swatch Beach Village, do not pass begin and collect $200.
 

Hat Hat Hat

Now, last but not least. Don’t forget your hat – your head will be so grateful. When watching your favorite team play at the Red Bull Beach Arena – don’t forget to accessorize your head. If you forgot your hat at home, don’t fret, all is not lost… head over to the Swatch Beach Village and get one at our very own #WorldChampsVienna merchandise store.

Our final tip – don’t melt.
