Arising from the ashes of the AVP, the National Volleyball League (NVL) has become one of the premier professional beach volleyball tournament series in the U.S. Hosting their first event in May in Baltimore, the NVL is looking forward to a fruitful season, recruiting new talent and new sponsors, and most of all, having some fun playing the game we all love.

NVL players Aurora Skarra-Gallagher, Laryssa Mereszczak, Tanya White, and Mike Sweet give us a preview of some of this summer’s most-coveted beach duds.
