Volleyball Ventures has been running volleyball tournaments at the Manhattan Beach pier for 30+ years, however had scheduling issues the last few years. VBV and Smackfest Events met in Nov., and decided to move the VBV Coed 4′s events from Manhattan to the Hermosa Pier, with the first event (Winter Wonderland) kicking off on Jan. 17th. All events will be in the standard VBV format, with various levels and rules, but with some Smackfest elements mixed in aimed at giving the participants a superior experience.
“Hermosa has always been a great venue for Smackfest events, so partnering with VBV to bring some of their events here made sense for many reasons,” stated Bill Sigler, founder of Smackfest in 1994. We are bringing on lots of new sponsors, offering drink/food specials at local establishments, and much more which will improve the participant’s experience, as well as bring additional revenues to local businesses. Many of the VBV participants also live in Hermosa, so it just made sense for Patrick to move some of the VBV events to the Hermosa pier.”
