There might only be 20 matches on Saturday but there will be top class beach volleyball witnessed at every single one – that’s our guarantee!

Here’s our at-a-glance guide to making the most of Super Saturday at the Poreč Major.

Match: Borger/Buthe v Laboureur/Sude
Where? Center Court
When? 09:00 CET
Why? It’s an all-German semifinal and the first match on Center Court. Apart from it being a massive derby match, you should get here early to book you spot on Center Court for the rest of the day!

Match: Doppler/Horst v Gavira/Herrera
Where? Center Court
When? 11:00 CET
Why? Whenever these Austrians play there’s an atmosphere to remember in the stands. On the sand, it will be tight: the head-to-head record is 3-3 but the Spaniards have won the last three meetings…

Match: Brouwer/Meeuwsen v Alison/Bruno
Where? Center Court
When? 14:00 CET
Why? Have you seen who’s playing? It’s the World Champs versus last year’s Poreč Major winners! If you miss this game you don’t deserve a seat on Center Court. There, we said it.

Match: Women’s Final
Where: Center Court
When? 16:30 CET
Why? It’s the golden end to the women’s tournament. One German team is guaranteed a place in the final but could Canadians Pavan/Bansley go one better after their silver medal last year?

Match: Men’s quarterfinal
Where? Center Court
When? 18:00/19:00 CET
Why? The world’s best men battle it out for a place in Sunday’s semifinal – and like we’ve said, if it’s Doppler/Horst be prepared sing and shout and let it all out!
