2017 Tournaments

2017 Beach Series

This year we are lucky enough to be able to use both Alki Beach AND Bottega to run tournaments.  We will use six nets for the Bottega events, which means 24 teams total per tournament session. Alki Beach has seven nets, allowing for 28 teams per tournament session. That means extra courts and extra playing opportunities for juniors and adults as we run our series. 

  • Tournaments may be held at two locations, with location rotating between age groups.

We are very excited to have this flexibility and the opportunity to better the beach experience for everyone in the community!



2017 Tournament Schedule

Tournaments are at Alki Beach and Bottega Fitness in Snohomish
*College Prep teams have travel tournaments that may conflict with the series and should consult with their coach before signing up.
