It was a rush of adrenaline for everyone at the first-ever Wakanow Beach Sports Series.

The first phase of the tournament kicked-off on September 24, 2016 and was concluded on October 1 , 2016. The venue was La Campagne Tropicana Beach Resort, Ikegun Village, Lagos.

All teams battled it out in several legs of beach soccer. The games ended with DHL Nigeria coming 1st, Oya Nigeria in 2nd place and Wakanow 3rd.
