HERMOSA BEACH, Calif. (Sept. 12, 2014) – The National Volleyball League (NVL) brings its 5th pro stop of the 2014 season to Southern California to host the 2014 Hermosa Beach Championships from September 19 – 21, 2014. The tournament will feature 16 elite men’s and women’s teams competing for a prize purse of $50,000 on eight courts just north of the Hermosa Beach pier.
“We always look forward to our Hermosa Beach tournament because of the tremendous support we get from the community,” said NVL Founder and CEO Albert Hannemann. “The fan turnout is incredible and we’re excited to bring them a full weekend of events, live music, player meet and greets and more. Many of our players have trained and competed on these beaches for years and feel at home here in Hermosa.”
Through the NVL’s PlayFIT Foundation and in partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles, the league will also host a free clinic with NVL pros on Saturday for all ages. The PlayFIT Foundation is a California nonprofit corporation working in collaboration with the National Volleyball League to increase physical activity in youth and introduce kids to the sport of volleyball.
