And we hit the sand now for the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour, which is being held in Beijing this weekend.

China's Zhang Xi and Xue Chen took on the Czech pair of Hana Klapalova and Lenka Hejeckova with a spot into the last eight on the line.

This is the first time the Chinese capital has had an international beach volleyball tournament since the 2008 Olympic Games.

The first set was very close and was tied at 14-all.

But the Chinese pair would take control of the frame and go on to a 21-15 first set victory.

Things were also close in the second set. With the Chinese pair doing a great job of defending.

The duo's attacking skills were also very good and that helped them wrap up the second set 21-17 in only 35 minutes.

With the win, Zhang and Xue moved into the last eight.
