With the City-versus-city competition, a trade mark of EVP Tour tournaments, the players and fans enjoy strong rivalries, as the teams from several cities will battle for supremacy in the sand and a chance to represent their city nationwide.

“We are very excited about our seven televised events including Savannah, GA, Naples, FL, Racine, WI, Reno Sparks, NV, Charleston WV, Panama City Beach, FL and Delray Beach, FL explained Ross Balling, EVP Tour Commissioner. We are very fortunate to continue our travels to some of the most beautiful beaches in the United States to show off our athlete’s talents.

As we continue to develop, we want to bring the EVP Tour to Europe with our international TV distribution. This opportunity to showcase our athletes overseas will drive the opportunities to bring “a great day at the beach” across the world”

EVP Tour has been hosting beach volleyball events since 1990 and for the past year we have been encouraging young athletes under the age of 21 to compete in our Spike n Splash divisions for Collegiate and High School athletes.

In addition, 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.


The EVP Tour’s primary aim is to support beach volleyball events that result in sponsors, participants, spectators and host communities feeling like “That was worth the trip, I wish the EVP Tour can make that happen here every weekend- we feel like a part of the game!”.  Additional results include media exposure for the tour that builds participation at all levels.  The EVP Tour is dedicated to providing its customer with more value than they have been promised.

On a local level, the EVP Staff and Network members’ primary aim is to develop new job opportunities and sponsor assets for the athletes.  The goal is to channel the resources to support the top team so they can compete and support their travel on the national EVP Tour.
