Hot Hajraa Outdoor Tournament, a photo series

It can hardly have escaped your notice; last weekend, the world’s largest grass volleyball tournament took place on campus. “It was hard to capture the scale of the event”, photographer Rien Boonstoppel pointed out. But he definitely succeeded in capturing the atmosphere of conviviality, the heat, and some of the action.
