Summer is just around the corner and nothing says summer like beach volleyball. Next month, the World Series of Beach Volleyball kicks off it’s week-long celebration of all things beach, including sports, music, culture and community, and they’ve shared a Magisto movie of what you can expect!
Before we get to the movie, Angie Akers from the WSOBV, who discovered Magisto through the Maria Shriver news story on Digital Royalty founder Amy Jo Martin’s favorite apps, gave us some background on the World Series of Beach Volleyball:
This unprecedented event brings the world’s greatest beach volleyball players and their fans together in a way that’s never been seen in the world of professional sports. Sanctioned by FIVB, the sport’s international governing body, the ASICS World Series of Beach Volleyball is the premier event in the sport plus more. In addition to the pro competition, the week also includes many open tournaments for all ages and experience levels.
With NBC Sports broadcasting the action, the top players from all over the world will compete on American soil for $1 million, the largest purse in FIVB history. Fans will have the opportunity to compete in co-ed and single gender 4’s and 6-man, youth, and collegiate tournaments throughout the week. And the action on the sand doesn’t end there. Musical performances all week long will complement the volleyball to delight and entertain all in attendance.
