The 12-stop AVP pro beach volleyball tour broke out its schedule with a mid-April start date, a mid-September end date and a lot of holes in between.
Santa Barbara (April 29-May 2), Huntington Beach (June 3-6), Hermosa Beach (July 16-18), Malibu (July 24-25), San Francisco (Aug. 14-15), Manhattan Beach (Aug. 19-22) and a yet-to-be-announced South Bay site (Sept. 17-19) make up half the schedule.
The other stops: Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. (the April 16-18 opener), Virginia Beach, Va. (June 18-20), Belmar, N.J. (June 25-27), Chicago (Aug. 27-29) and Mason, Ohio (Sept. 3-5).
Nothing on Fourth of July weekend? Hmm…
