Meet #TeamMaaji

Embodying the sun-soaked, sandy spirit of summer, Maaji’s wide range of colourful swimwear and activewear provides the perfect uniform for any of the season’s favourite pastimes. And when it comes to summertime sports, is there any activity that screams summer fun in the sun more than beach volleyball?

Because Maaji garments are so ideally suited to the sport, Colourbox (as an ardent stockist of all things Maaji) is proud to be the official sponsor of Team Maaji, a successful local women’s beach volleyball duo.

Comprised of team members Lianne Vink (30) and Dieke Hessels (28), Team Maaji has proven themselves to be champions of the local beach volleyball scene. Having settled in Cape Town after moving from the Netherlands, Team Maaji has aced their way to the number 1 position on the national circuit and are currently working hard at maintaining that position.

The national beach volleyball series consists of 8 events throughout South Africa and has taken Team Maaji to a number of South Africa’s greatest locations, including, amongst others, Durban, Stellenbosch, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town.

Considering that the upcoming season will be only the second season of Team Maaji’s participation in the national circuit, Colourbox is beyond proud of the team’s incredible accomplishment of having virtually wiped out all of their competition; while looking bold and fabulous in their distinctive Maaji outfits of course.

It’s unsurprising that the sporty Dutch ladies are loving their adopted new home of Cape Town. Who wouldn’t love practicing their passion on the breathtaking and perennially popular Cape beaches, like Clifton and Camps Bay?

Furthermore it’s clear that the team’s love for their new home, coupled with their enjoyment of playing the sport in their comfortable, yet strikingly sexy Maaji apparel, create the winning formula that has resulted in the team’s phenomenal success.

Feeling amazing (and looking gorgeous) every time the players train or step on to the court for a game have undoubtedly provided Vink and Hessels with the confidence and spirit to crush their competition. And the reversible nature of their Maaji swimwear further adds a dynamic versatility to Team Maaji’s uniform. Having toured in Rome in June 2016, the volleyball pair are excited and looking forward to further international exposure in 2017; and of course preserving their status as South Africa’s top female beach volleyball duo.

While you need not be a part of the professional circuit to enjoy some beach volleyball fun, comfortable and fabulously functional activewear – like any garment from design powerhouse Maaji – will certainly help take your volleyballing to a whole new level.
