    6. Some hand-to-hand combat.


    7. Stretching for the fend.


    8. One of the german girls getting ready to fire one over the net.


    9. Successful defence/offence.

    They're supposed to have the second round at Karapiro today, on the banks of the Waikato river, so at least close to the water .

    Thanks, rjd. Number 8 is one of my favourites too. Not your typical sports shot, especially with the ball out of the frame, but still works. Here's the full 3-shot sequence.



    They had a photographer from the Waikato Times there too with a 1D and 100-400mm. She got a very cool shot on the front of yesterday's paper. I think I'll have to invest in a TC now!
