Manhattan Beach Volleyball*
Beach Volleyball is a popular year-round sport in Manhattan Beach.
And the daddy of them all, known as the "Wimbledon" or "Super Bowl" of Beach Volleyball, is the "Manhattan Beach Open" — held every summer (usually in mid-July or August) on the beach near Manhattan Beach Pier. It's the best known, biggest, and most historic beach volleyball tournament in the world — a FUN beach event that you don't want to miss!

More Info on Manhattan Beach Open

We're both big fans of Beach Volleyball, especially after watching the U.S. men's team (Olympic champions Phil Daulhauser and Todd Rogers) and the U.S. women's team (Olympic champions Misty May-Treanor and Kerry Walsh) win Gold medals at the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics.

Volleyball Walk of Fame
Many local residents have participated in the tournament and some have even won it — winners are honored with a bronze plaque on the Manhattan Beach Pier's prestigious "Volleyball Walk of Fame."

"Manhattan Beach Open"
— AVP Crocs Cup Shootout
Manhattan Beach prides itself as the center of the volleyball universe. Since 1960, it has been home to the most prestigious volleyball tournament in the world — the "Manhattan Beach Open" AVP Crocs Cup Shootout Championship.

AVP Tour
— Pro Beach Volleyball
Prior to 2011, the "Manhattan Beach Open" was the biggest of all the beach volleyball tournaments on the AVP Tour.

The AVP (Association of Volleyball Players) is the only Pro Beach Volleyball Tour in the country. It is made up of the best men's and women's pro beach volleyball players in the U.S... if not the world. The annual AVP event is telecast live on TV — check local listings for more info.
