Summer 2021 NVC Tournament Update

Hey NVC, 

We wanted to update everyone on NVC Tournaments this summer. This may influence which AVP tier you choose when renewing your membership (note to check out our Newportvolleyballclub.com website for help renewing membership). Unfortunately, Easton’s beach (Newport) has not approved us hosting tournaments this summer. We were very sad to hear, but understand the decision as our tournaments draw in hundreds of people and it would be impossible to social distance and allow locals to also enjoy their beach. We are still hopeful with vaccines now being distributed that next summer we may be approved to have tournaments and boy will that be a great summer! I’m sure everyone has missed killing it on the beach and of course that glorious NVC beach swag and wonderful volleyball tans/burns. Let's hope for the best tournament summer to come will be in 2022. 

Now, just to be as transparent as possible we wanted to ensure everyone understands that we are in close communication with Easton’s beach. If somehow, social distancing guidelines change this summer, we will explore the opportunity to have a tournament. But those chances are small for this summer. However, NVC will be prepared to host tournaments if we are approved this year or in the future.

To ensure everyone is keeping their beach feet active, we wanted to remind the club to check out volleyamerica.com to view tournament schedules. Although NVC can't host tournaments there are many other local organizations (in MA, CT and RI) that will be having tournaments, check them out and sign up!
