The international beach volleyball tour is returning to the United States for the first time in 10 years.

The World Series of Beach Volleyball will be played in Long Beach, Calif., from July 22-28. It will be a stop on the FIVB world tour, which hasn't visited the U.S. since 2003.

The affiliation with the international tour nearly guarantees that the top players in the world will play. In addition to the 2-on-2 sport played in the Olympics, there will be competitions featuring 4-on-4 and 6-on-6 teams. Organizers also are planning a music festival during the event.

Promoter Leonard Armato says he wants to celebrate all aspects of beach and volleyball culture.
