Guide to Earls Court

Great Britain captain Ben Pipes gives BBC Sport a behind-the-scenes tour of the indoor volleyball Olympic venue, Earls Court.

GB took on the defending Olympic champions the United States and 2008 runners-up, Brazil, who were impressed with what they saw at the test event.

Despite being ranked 94th in the global standings, Great Britain defeated Mexico (21st) and Egypt (14th), proving they have the potential to do much more than merely make up the numbers in London.
