Clearwater Beach is the hot spot for beach volleyball on this side of the state, a frequent stop on the national professional tours, such as BVA Pro Beach Volleyball. Above, Dax Holdren attempts a shot against Kevin Wong on his way to winning (with his doubles partner) $15,000 in the BVA tournament last year on Clearwater Beach. (Pro Beach Volleyball will be back on Clearwater Beach next year with plans for NBC to broadcast the games live.)
Meanwhile, the Florida Beach Volleyball pro-am tour stops there Saturday and Sunday with adult play and the Junior National Beach Championships for USA Volleyball.
It's all free to watch from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the south side of Pier 60. For more information, check www.flbeachvolleyball.com.
