AVP Huntington Beach Open

May 3-5, 2019

The 2019 AVP season will be kicking off in style as they hit the sands of Surf City USA for the Huntington Beach Open. Since 2000 Huntington Beach has hosted more AVP events than any other location, with this being the 20th straight year that a pro beach volleyball tournament has been played there. Last year, Huntington Beach was the venue for an FIVB 4-Star event hosted by the AVP, but this year it will be all familiar faces as the pros fight to kick off the season with a big tournament win. For both men and women, the field has been wide open as six different teams have won in the last seven years for each gender. With teams shaken up and plenty of newcomers on the scene, there’s a good chance this trend continues. Spend your Cinco de Mayo weekend with the AVP as we kick off our summer of beach volleyball. 

While your are not watching the competition, enjoy Huntington Beach beaches, restaurants, shopping and night life
