Event Details

The 2019 AVP season will be kicking off in style as we hit the sands of Surf City for the Huntington Beach Open. Since 2000 Huntington Beach has hosted more AVP events than any other location, with this being the 20th straight year that a pro beach volleyball tournament has been played there. Last year, Huntington Beach was the venue for an FIVB 4-Star event hosted by the AVP, but this year it will be all familiar faces as the pros fight to kick off the season with a big tournament win. For both men and women, the field has been wide open as six different teams have won in the last seven years for each gender. With teams shaken up and plenty of newcomers on the scene, there's a good chance this trend continues. Spend your Cinco de Mayo weekend with the AVP as we kick off our summer of beach volleyball.

Join us at the Huntington Beach Pier- 1 Main Street, Huntington Beach, CA 92648.

Watch all of the AVP action each day on Amazon Prime Video, where we will be livestreaming three courts with on-court interviews, commentary & analysis from Kevin Barnett and Camryn Irwin, and exclusive athlete segments. Tune in to NBCSN on Sunday, May 5th at 8:00pm PT to witness the top beach volleyball athletes in the world battle it out in the finals from Surf City, USA!
