Beach Volleyball Event Takes Place On Wednesday And Thursday
If you want to put a team into Manhattan Beach’s Charlie Saikley 6-man beach volleyball tournament, I highly recommend you do so before July 1.
After that date, registration prices increase significantly. Unless you are a corporate team; that fee stays the same but it’s expensive enough to begin with, at least if you ask me.
Anyway, the tournament is on for July 31-Aug. 1. That’s a Wednesday and Thursday, which is certainly better than last year’s Tuesday-Wednesday though not as good as Saturday-Sunday. Again, if you ask me.
Here’s the breakdown of prices before and after July 1:
• Non-sponsored 50+ for men, 35+ for women: $300/500
• Non-sponsored Men’s and Women’s Open, Masters: (50+ for men, 35+ for women): $650/900
• Teams sponsored by local businesses: $1,000/$1,200
• Corporate sponsored teams: $2,500/$2,500

This year’s event will have, like the past two, backpack inspections. The concert-type security people will be looking for alcohol, as any local knows by now, so the partying will have to be at a house party or the bars.
And frankly, the scene in the bars last year – at least Shellback Tavern and Ercoles – was pretty lively.
And I expect it to be the same this year and even picking up a bit by the end of the Finals on Thursday.
Look at it this way; those out during the week are the hard-core partiers and sometimes that makes it better than when it’s the masses.
Hey guys. Those of you who can’t make the Six Man tournament should check out the beach volleyball tourney in Long Beach the week before. It starts on the 22nd! Free admission to see the best players in the world do their thing. Also, sign up for the amateur tourneys for a chance to win up to 10,000 dollars. Not to mention the live music and booze. Here’s a link for all of you who are interested. https://www.facebook.com/WSOBV?fref=ts
