The Super Bowl of our sport…the Wimbledon of beach volleyball…the Grandaddy of Them All.  We’ve heard it all and it means one thing: the AVP Gold Series, Manhattan Beach Open where four athletes will be solidified in history on the Manhattan Beach Pier.  This event is the last of our California stops and the second of the AVP Gold Series for the 2020 season. With the largest Main Draw of the year and usually the largest Qualifier, this is guaranteed to be a historic and entertaining event for all fans.
