Although Santa Barbara seems to have cooled down this week, the forecast for this weekend is sunny with a chance of… volleyballs? This weekend, September 7-9, West Beach will be taken over by diving, spiking and serving athletes competing for one of volleyball’s most esteemed titles: AVP Champions.
Just off the plane from London, many of America’s Olympic volleyball superstars— and some hoping to challenge the nation’s elite—will grace the Santa Barbara coast. Twenty-four men and twenty-four women will compete in pool play on Friday and Saturday, with a women’s final match on Sunday at 10 a.m. and men’s finals at approximately 11:30 a.m.
This event is completely free, granted you reserve tickets ahead enough and don’t mind getting to the court early in the morning. So don’t wait another second! Click here to order your tickets and witness a weekend of volleying and fun in the sun.
