CHICAGO (March 18, 2014) – In most parts of the country, beach volleyball season is rapidly approaching; in some parts, snow is still melting and rivers are starting to flow. March is a perfect time to launch the 2014 EVP Tour schedule for juniors, amateurs and professional beach volleyball athletes.
“We are very excited for another season of fast pace volleyball action,” says Commissioner of the EVP Tour, Ross Balling, “There are extremely talented athletes competing on the tour in 2014, including Gold Medalists and thousands of young athletes. Over 80,000 fans are expected to spectate over the course of 17 national events. Additional fans will be able to watch the EVP Tour on the Beach Sports Network with TV coverage in 40 states across the US.
The EVP® Beach Volleyball Tour’s primary aim is to support beach volleyball events that engage families, fans, athletes, students, communities and sponsors in a great day at the beach. At each event, spectators will not only see elite athletes compete on the sand for top honors, they also have the chance to interact with the pros by participating in contests and promotions at hosting venues. EVP® Tour events channel local resources and draw all participants together, benefiting the entire community. Teams who finish 1st or 2nd in these events are awarded bids to compete in the EVP® Rocks Rosemont on July 18 & 19 and the EVP® World Finals of Beach Volleyball in Stockton, CA on September 26 & 27.

Each tour stop offers local spectators the opportunity to compete in contests, clinics with the pros and lots of volleyball. The action doesn’t stop when the sun ends. Pre and post event parties at local restaurants will give fans have the opportunity to bump elbows with their favorite players and compete in fun events like “Bump for the Bucket” for fun prizes.
As EVP Championship events continue to develop, our goal is bring the EVP Tour to Europe with our international TV distribution and partnership with the PROSeries. This opportunity to showcase our athletes overseas will drive the opportunities to be a global trademark. EVP can bring “a great day at the beach” across the world”
EVP is excited to have Wilson Volleyballs, Sockwa Footwear and Gem Gear as official sponsors. Come join us on tour, it is our 24st annual season of celebrating life, beach and travel.
