This is written from a male perspective, but could perhaps provide some inspiration?

Norway’s beach handball team fined for not wearing bikini bottoms

https://www.irishtimes.com/sport/other- ... -1.4626695

The International Handball Federation requires women to wear bikini bottoms “with a close fit and cut on an upward angle toward the top of the leg.” The sides of the bikini bottoms must be no more than 4 inches. Men, on the other hand, can wear shorts as long as 4 inches above their knees as long as they are “not too baggy.”

Have they gone all puritanical?

I had never heard of the concept of beach handball before this story broke, let alone imagined that there would be such a thing as a national team. They just got millions worth of free publicity around the world.

Not to be confused with volleyball.

I’m quite familiar with volleyball, both the classic and beach varieties, and am happy to watch that. I’ll admit to not finding classic team handball particularly interesting either (I’d rank it somewhere between curling and bicycle races - save the odd crash).

Not to my knowledge, although I did once compete in a ski race in Idre, so that would have been pretty close.

Much better at the fjord in the summer! I've been swimming with kjæresten and swans (white, but quite unexpected) all yesterday <3
