The most important international beach volleyball tournament in France has been given a new name: "Henkel Beach-Volleyball Grand Slam 2006". Compared to last year, the global manufacturer of brand name products has taken a giant leap forward. At that time, Henkel broke new ground with its very successful, first-time beach volleyball sponsorship. Now, Henkel is expanding its involvement in beach volleyball competition by becoming the title sponsor of this event. From July 25 - 30, 2006, these world-class matches will take place directly on the "Champ de Mars", a large public green space directly adjacent to the Eiffel Tower in Paris. In addition to the title sponsorship in Paris, Henkel will continue to sponsor the Beach Volleyball Grand Slam tournament in Klagenfurt, Austria, demonstrating Henkel's solid commitment to this Olympic sport.
