With great sadness we have received the news of the sudden death of our colleague and friend Laurent Vito Cusumano. He was a great person who was a very active participant in tournaments of IFBT International Beach Tennis in Catalonia and other countries.
IFBT believes in the sport not only as a competition tool, but also as a healthy means of forming relationships and friendships.
Laurent was one of the most active players who cultivated many friendships in recent years, and he will be greatly meast by the family of Catalonia and World Beach Tennis.
From these lines we want to give our condolences to his wife Natalie, his children, and family in this difficult time they are going through.
The Catalan Beach Tennis Association has decided to dedicate the next international stage on July 19 in Castelldefels to his memory.
