The 22nd annual Smackfest is almost here! It is time to gear up for some fun and beach volleyball this Saturday, July 18, near Hermosa Pier. We know you and your team have been practicing and now it is almost beach volleyball tournaments Hermosa Beachtime to show everyone what you’ve got. Smackfest tournaments are all-day beach volleyball tournaments that are held on Hermosa Beach, so it is important to make sure that you and your team pack everything you all need for the event. Here are few things to keep in mind when you are getting your gear together:


You are going to be spending the majority of your day on the beach, playing in the sun. If you don’t want to leave the tournament looking like a lobster and in pain, then it is imperative that you remember to bring the sunscreen! Even the mildest of sunburns can eventually lead to skin cancer and not to mention, bright red and painful skin is not particularly attractive. We want all of our tournament participants to be safe and healthy and we want them to protect themselves. Whatever you do this Saturday, please do not forget sunscreen.


While we have plenty of drinks and refreshments at this tournament, it is always a good idea to bring your own water to the tournament, that way you can have it when you need it while you are playing. If you are going to be spending the day playing volleyball on the beach, it is important to stay hydrated!
