The AVP New Orleans Open is the Return of Pro Beach Volleyball to the Area.

This weekend marks the first time that the AVP (Association of Volleyball Professionals) will play in New Orleans since 1999. The AVP New Orleans Open will be held May 22nd - 24th in Kenner's Laketown.



The tournament will begin with open qualifying Thursday May 21st, and will feature 16 Men's and Women's beach volleyball teams.. With Olympic Standouts such as Kerry Walsh Jennings and April Ross, and locals battling it out this Memorial Day weekend for $150,000. General Admission is FREE and premium package tickets are available for those seeking a more unique experience.

New Orleans is the first stop of 8 for the 2015 AVP Tour. The plan of the AVP is to turn Pro Beach Volleyball into a mainstream U.S. Sport. This would give Pro Beach Volleyball more exposure instead of the current every four years at the Summer Olympics.

This event has made big headlines already for the area. You can check out articles from our friends at The Advocate, Coconut Beach Volleyball Complex and NOLA.com.
