Although the AVP has shut down, professional beach volleyball is still in swing. This past weekend, Cincinnati hosted the 2010 Players Championship at Hahana Beach. Kerri Walsh joined forces with Brooke Hanson to play against the top ex-AVP players. Although, they did not win a match, I wonder if the restructuring of professional volleyball, without a point system for rank and qualifying purposes, will better volleyball as a whole? Will players change partner more frequently? Or will this decrease the top tier overall play. In either case, it would have been awesome to see Kerri Walsh play against Misty May this past weekend.
Beach volleyball lives on. It will never die.
