Beach volleyball players descend on Club Med for National Volleyball League Players Championship
By Aimee Ford Foster
Some of the best beach volleyball players in the country will compete in The National Volleyball League Players Championship this weekend in Port St. Lucie.
The two-day tournament features 16 teams — eight men’s teams and eight women’s teams — vying for the top prize in the $100,000 event at Club Med Sandpiper Bay.
The NVL, in its fourth season, and the Club Med Academies recently partnered to start a sand volleyball academy at the resort which already had tennis, golf and triathlon academies.
“We have hundreds of players,” NVL co-founder and CEO Albert Hannemann said. “We are about growing the game and are involved in that at the grass roots level. We have a huge junior tour we’ve started with 5,000 players. So starting the academy was a big deal.”
The Players Championship is the highlight of the season for the NVL.
“All the teams in this tournament had to qualify, so it’s the top eight teams on each side, the top 32 players,” Hannemann said.
This is the sixth event in the championship tour.
On the men’s side, Josh Binstock, a member of the 2012 Canadian Olympic team, and Eric Zaun won two events this season as did the team of Mike Placek and Austin Rester. The women’s tour has been dominated by the top-ranked team of Priscilla Piantadosi-Lima and Karolina Sowala, winners of four championship events this year.
Although several players, including Sowala reside in Florida, none are from the Treasure Coast.
The season finale has been in Las Vegas the past three years, but Club Med will be its permanent home.
The event, which includes a free volleyball clinic Saturday plus the tournament, is open to the public. The professional players will be on hand to work with participants in the clinic.
“When you get here, you have to feel the energy,” said Scott Del Mastro, Club Med Academies Director of Operations. “It’s a whole ’nother world … There is so much energy at these tournaments. It fits into what Club Med is about.”
Club Med initially became involved with the NVL through a number of volleyball/fan fest events at various Club Meds locations.
Del Mastro said pairing the NVL with the academy, and bringing the Players Championship to Sandpiper Bay, was a natural outgrowth. The 2014 NVL & ROX Beach Series Junior Global Challenge held at the facility in August launched the academy.
While the NVL has more than a dozen sponsors, Hannemann said Mikasa and Australian Gold are the main sponsors for the Players Championship.
The main draw competition will take place Friday. The format is double elimination beginning at 11 a.m. with play continuing until 5 p.m. Semifinals and the championship match will be Saturday.
