Event Details

Every year at the Manhattan Beach Open, nearly 200 teams put it all on the line to become one of the four athletes to cement their name in beach volleyball history. The AVP Gold Series // Manhattan Beach Open is recognized as the Super Bowl of beach volleyball—big stage, big money and a big reward as AVP stars fight for the chance to enshrine their name on the Manhattan Beach Pier. This year’s MBO marks the second tournament of the 2019 Gold Series and the last of the three California stops. To learn more about the AVP Gold Series and what that means, learn more here.

Join us at the Manhattan Beach Pier- Manhattan Beach, CA 90266.
