Some suggest, too, that beach volleyball is more exciting, that it requires more strategy and a certain amount of anticipation and a tremendous amount of teamwork.
Utahns will get a chance to see beach volleyball at its highest level this weekend.
Some of the country’s best players, as well as top local players, will converge on Liberty Park on Aug. 16 to 18 for the Salt Lake City AVP Open. It will be the first stop on a seven-tournament national schedule for the Association of Volleyball Professionals.
The event will feature 16 men’s and 16 women’s teams.
A qualifier will be held Aug. 14 and 15 at the Sports Mall, 5445 S. 900 East, headquarters of Wasatch Beach Volleyball.
Tickets will be available on-site at Liberty Park.
Prices will range from $10 for individual days to $60 to $70 for three-day tickets. Children 10 and under are free.
