Does anyone at your coastal Orange County home enjoy watching volleyball? If so, come experience the 67th Annual Laguna Open Beach Volleyball Tournament. This event is scheduled to take place from September 9th through 11th, 2022. The tournament will be held at Main Beach and is in partnership with the California Beach Volleyball Association and the Association of Volleyball Professionals. The tradition of this tournament runs deep in Laguna Beach. Many great players have been involved with this event, including several Olympians.
The Hotel Laguna will host the “Hotel Laguna Open” court. Tournament games will run up through the quarterfinals Sunday. The Men’s and Women’s Laguna Open divisions plan to take the 12 top teams, plus another four teams that qualify on Friday. The main draw will then include 16 men’s and women’s teams that will compete over the weekend. The two top finishing teams per gender will get Wild Card bids into the AVP Huntington Beach Tour Series event in November. The Men’s and Women’s Tournaments will award a $20,000 total purse.
This tournament is supported entirely by volunteers, with entry fees going directly into the prize purses. Donations from those living in coastal Orange County and the surrounding areas also supplement the cost of the tournament. This is a great opportunity for teens to get volunteer hours. Available positions include line judge, score keeping, and court managing.
