Another weekend, another AVP event! Players will begin flying out tomorrow for the Cincinnati Open as the qualifier takes place Thursday, followed up by main draw play Friday through Sunday.
The women’s qualifier will take place at the Lindner Family Tennis Center, a venue that has hosted the AVP a number of times in the last decade. The men’s qualifier will take place at the Sports Express Volleyball Complex close by. Below are the teams and qualifier brackets:

While there are not ‘traditional beaches’ in Cincinnati, the AVP is all about sharing our great sport, so we bring the beach to you! Of course the beach is where the sport has its roots, but volleyball has one of the largest participatory rates in the country and that number continues to grow. With a community here in the Cincinnati area that embraces the sport of volleyball at the youth, high school and college levels and beyond it is no wonder that beach volleyball is popular, and it makes perfect sense to host an AVP tournament here in this beautiful setting.
If you can’t make it out to the event, that’s okay. Like our previous events this season, we will have live scoring available throughout the main draw play and live streaming available Saturday and Sunday of the event. The finals will be broadcast on Sunday on CBS Sports Network, so be sure to check your local listings.
