Pro players spike the OBX!
Saturday on the Outer Banks was a perfect day for beach volleyball, and the EVP tour had it’s share of players trying to win top prize money and claim the Outer Banks Championship title.

The Outer Banks weather cooperated perfectly, with blue skies and sunshine and a breeze out of the north. While it was very comfortable on the sidelines sitting in the sun, the players were still commenting on how hot it was getting on the court during play. Jeannette’s Pier was a great venue to hold this event with the pier house shielding some of the northern winds, and it gave some of the pier goers a chance to watch some top level volleyball while they fished or walked around the venue.
It took all day, the first games started at 8 am with nearly 20 nets set up lining their way down the beach. By late afternoon, they were down to two teams of ladies and two teams of men playing for the title.
While the Men’s Open Division had a handful of local teams trying to get on the podium, it was the 16 and under girls that came out in force. This was their opportunity to play in a local tournament and it appeared that most of the younger girls coaches encouraged them to test their skills at this golden opportunity.
Thanks to the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau for bringing this event back to the Nags Head for the second year in a row, and a big kudos to all the men and women who traveled and competed in the event. What a great reason to spend the day on the beach with friends and watch some great competition!
