Athlete Information

Hometown Redondo Beach, CA
Height 6'0"
Birthday July 21, 1996

Eric Beranek was born and raised in Redondo Beach, CA where he fell in love with the beach lifestyle. He grew up playing with his dad and a group of Manhattan Beach locals that would only play side-out scoring on the big court. This shaped Eric’s entire personality and outlook on life. Not only is Eric quick with the wit, but he’s also known as being one of the fastest players on the AVP. 

After playing a few events here and there, he committed to beach volleyball full time in 2018 and qualified for four of six AVP tournaments, with a high of 13th. In 2019 he was the Volleyball Magazine’s Breakthrough Player of the Year, highlighted by a phenomenally-fought 3rd place with Bill Kolinske in the prestigious Manhattan Beach Open. Although he’s young, he’s an old soul that loves 80’s hair music, playing guitar, and is a natural entertainer on and off the court. Eric currently resides in Hermosa Beach, CA where he does the majority of his training.
