Smack Weekend Wrap-Up

Jul 17, 2017 8:10:02 AM

It was an exciting week for volleyfans across the country. Between the NVL Season Opener, the WSOBV Long Beach Open, and the BVCA National Championships, the top domestic players, international stars, and youth talent hit the sands of sunny Southern California. Here's what you missed:

The NVL Long Beach Open was held this weekend alongside the WSOBV in Long Beach, California. This was the first NVL tournament of the season--and the first since the annoucement of the NVL's new partnerships with Leonard Armato and the World Series of Beach Volleyball (and a corresponding bump of $150,000 in prize money). Smack is proud to be the Official Apparel Sponsor of the NVL and support their mission to #growthegame.

After three days of intense competition, Kim Hildreth and Raquel Ferreira emerged champions on the women's side, and Dave Palm and Miles Evans won the men's side. Smack players were out in full force, competing in their custom bikinis,  board shorts, and a new line of high performance tanks and tees.

In the World Series of Beach Volleyball the USA was well-resprented by top talent. Phil Dalhausser and Nick Lucena took home the gold, while the women were represented on the podium by April Ross and Lauren Fendrick (silver) and Sara Hughes and Kelly Claes in their Smack Sportswear bikini bottoms (bronze).

Smack's newest sponsored athlete, Olympian Sean Rosenthal, also competed with partner Trevor Crabb---amidst the exciting news that  Rosenthal will be sporting Smack Sportswear for the remainder of the AVP season. We are more than excited to have him on board, and look out for announcements about exclusive gear (like limited edition Rosey's Raiders t-shirts!).

Finally, the BVCA National Championship concluded this weekend at the Hermosa Pier. The tournament included 470 teams from 70 of the top beach volleyball clubs in the nation. Smack enjoyed watching the young talent fo the Smack Family compete in their custom sublimated bikinis, tanks, shorts, and leggings.

At the tournament, Smack also added Jason Jones and Sirenia Volleyball to the Smack Family. Smack is excited to be the Exclusive Apparel Company of their two tours--the Sirenia Beach VB Tour and the Indoor "In It To Win It Challenge Series." Read up on the full details of the partnership here.

While it was a weekend full of big names and big news, we've got all week to prepare for Smack's favorite event of the year: AVP Hermosa. As Smack was founded on the SoCal sands, we love the chance to watch all of our amazing Smack athletes compete right in our backyard. See you there!
