The EVP Tour 2012 brought to you by Sparkling ICE, is proud to announce its newest network director, The Sand Club! Together with our other divisions, Ross Balling – Midwest, Carlos Jimenez – Southeast, Craig Lenniger – Northeast. Our competition this year going to have some great mix of competition with our Western partners Misty La Salvia and Allen Alexander.
Owner and founder, Allen Alexander, of The Sand Club, started leagues and tournaments in Mesa and Gilbert, Arizona in January 2008. The Sand Club expanded to Salty Senorita, a bar and grill in Peoria, and Mark Taylor luxury apartments in Chandler and Tempe in 2009. In 2010, The Sand Club teamed up with Cadillac Ranch and hosted the Sand Slam, originally offering a 6-on-6 sand volleyball tournament for players in the restaurant industry and other local businesses as well as raising money for charity. The first Sand Slam was at Tempe Beach Park. In 2011 so it was it was brought to the middle of Tempe Marketplace, an outdoor mall, where fans and spectators could watch from Cadillac Ranch’s balcony! This makes for some great excitement for the spectators and players.
Another big step for The Sand Club in 2011 was teaming up with volleyball professional, Ryan Mariano, who offered clinics for our junior club and adults which can be seen at www.thestarterclub.com.
Since it inception, The Sand Club has always been about the recreational players as much as the competitive players but making every player feel like a professional with scores and standings updated weekly on Facebook and Twitter, along with photo posts. EVP is a great fit, Allen said, “They believe in growing the players at their level and the New Point System they will be offering with their Team Mates Card for their players in 2012. Now our players can get a fare shake at every event they participate with the EVP and at home! The EVP point system will help our players to be placed Nationally at every level we play at. With every division of play being offered by EVP Tour. “ Ross said, “He is very excited to add this new division to the EVP, Our tournaments and play has always been about the player. We work hard to make sure the competition is exciting for our shows and events. We want every Team Mate to feel part of the EVP family and continue to participate through out the US. Our 18 Events this year will run throughout every region, with every level of play from Juniors, Amateurs and the Pros. Allen and Misty are great partners for the tour. We love their program!”
