What is The Battle?

The Battle Against Ovarian Cancer is an opportunity for friends, family, community or corporate groups to be part of a unique sporting event and to create lasting memories of a wonderful day out - AND you get to play beach volleyball!  The best part is you don't need to have experience.  Your team could even get a profressional advantage by getting one of our 'Dream Team' members to help you out.  Dream Team members are state and national volleyball experts!

Maybe you’ve been inspired to compete by someone you know, or maybe it's your unrelenting quest for Battle glory (lets face it - it's all about the trophy!). Or perhaps you just want to get together with friends for a great day out. 

The Cause?

Ovarian cancer is a malignancy arising from the ovaries. Normally the ovaries are almond-shaped and sized organs in the female pelvis. They produce the female hormones during the menstrual cycle and eggs that can be fertilised by sperm. Cancer can not only affect the ovaries, but spread to other organs within and outside the female pelvis.

Ovarian cancer is often referred to as the “silent killer” because there are no early warning signs and symptoms aren’t noticeable until the disease is more advanced, involves other organs and is less treatable. Early ovarian cancer symptoms are often vague and are commonly thought to be related to other less serious conditions.
