Men and women professional and open players will battle it out for equal cash prizes at Main Beach in Laguna. popular “ Battle of the Beaches” four-person city championship will also be held on Sunday pitting Laguna’s Main Beach, Victoria Beach, Three Arch Bay and Emerald Bay against each other for bragging rights (and cheesy little medals). Those finals will be played just before the men’s and women’s open finals on Sunday. A qualifying tournament will be held on Friday, October 22 for teams competing to get into the main draw on Saturday and Sunday. Four teams from both men’s and women’s will qualify on Friday to play in the main draw over the weekend, joining the top ranked teams starting on Saturday.

 

  1. partnership of the City of Laguna Beach, The Association of Volleyball Professionals (AVP) and the California Beach Volleyball Association (CBVA) are working together to bring the tournament and top players to Main Beach.
