Here’s a question for you – but promise you won’t laugh.

Have you ever played a beach volleyball match on grass, on the side of a mountain watched by a cow?

Stop giggling! You promised!

Well, the answer to that question for two of the Gstaad Major’s most popular teams – Anouk Vergé-Dépré and Isabelle Forrer and Karla Borger and Britta Büthe – is now YES!

We’re not exactly sure what the cow thought of it – he or she was probably more interested in eating or roaming around the mountains. Judging by the face he or she doesn’t look to impressed, though!

But, as our exclusive pictures show, it is possible to play this sport we love absolutely anywhere. Where next? The moooooo-n?!
