Event Details

No city outside the state of California has hosted more pro beach tournaments than Chicago, which will add one more to its tally with the AVP Gold Series final tournament. Fittingly, just as the summer closes on Labor Day, so too does this year’s AVP schedule, and what a way to end it!  Chicago has consistently had packed stands and fierce competition with the Chicago skyline serving as a picturesque backdrop.  To learn more about the AVP Gold Series and what that means, read here.

Join us at Oak Street Beach.
