The Association of Volleyball Professionals announced today the addition of the AVP Hawai‘i Invitational at Waikiki Beach to its schedule for this year.

The Sept. 14-16 event is in partnership with the sponsoring Hawai‘i Tourism Authority.

The parties said it will be an international exhibition event featuring “top male and female beach volleyball stars from across the United States and abroad,” according to a release.

Under terms of the contract, the HTA will pay the AVP $500,000. There are a series of three, one-year options after this year.

“Because of this new endeavor with the HTA, our official destination partner for this event, we are thrilled to be able to bring the highest level of beach volleyball to the beaches of America’s beloved Aloha state in a fresh, new, and exciting way,” said Donald Sun, AVP managing partner, in a release.

“The AVP Hawai‘i Invitational is a major addition to Hawai‘i’s sports marketing portfolio and we thank the AVP for believing in Waikīkī Beach as a world-class venue to further expand the reach of professional beach volleyball to audiences worldwide,” said George D. Szigeti, HTA president and CEO.

Organizers said the event will include an interactive sponsor village experience, a keiki volleyball clinic, meet-and-greets with the players, sunrise yoga in the Club AVP area and other attractions.

General admission is to be free. VIP locations will also be offered.
