During the summer, Alki Beach becomes the hub for serious beach volleyball in the Seattle region.

Leading this craze is Seattle’s Alki Volleyball Association, the top promoters of beach volleyball in the Pacific Northwest since 2005.

“It grew out of a tradition here at Alki,” says AVA co-owner Phillip van Rooyen, “We wanted to open that up to all those that play, and our tournaments are central for all the players and their results."
