2019 Tournament Presented by the City of Manhattan Beach and Association of Volleyball Professionals (AVP)
Manhattan Beach Open by AVP
Manhattan Beach is probably most famous for its beach volleyball and the grand daddy of beach volleyball tournaments, the Manhattan Beach Open. Since 1960, this tournament, which started as an amateur event and is now part of the professional volleyball players tour, has been a popular summertime activity. The Manhattan Beach Open is the only professional volleyball tournament in which amateurs are able to "place into" the event through pre-qualifying rounds. Many local residents have participated in the tournament and some have won the tournament including U.S. Olympic Silver Medalist, Mike Dodd. Winners of the tournament are memorialized with bronze volleyball-shaped plaques in the "Volleyball Walk of Fame" which spans the length of the Manhattan Beach Pier.
This year's tournament will be celebrating 60 years of beach volleyball tradition, honoring greats of the past and present and the second tournament of the 2019 Gold Series! The celebration begins with the Volleyball Walk of Fame red carpet ceremony at the Manhattan Beach Pier Thursday, August 15, 2019, to honor last year’s men’s and women’s champions – Nick Lucena, Phil Dalhausser, Alix Klineman and April Ross.
