Beach Volleyball Hits San Francisco



I don't know anything about beach volleyball or the AVP (which is coordinating body of the American tour) and I certainly had never been to an event. Over the weekend the AVP came to San Francisco for the San Francisco Open. The event venue was great and the action was good:

AVP Beach Volleyball was super cool. I am not a volleyball person but I found it super entertaining, fun and truly enjoyed myself.

  18. There was a lot of interest in the beach volleyball when it came to the London 2012 Olympics. I can't think why....

    Looks like it was a good day out.
