Hundreds of men, women, coeds, and junior boys and girls athletes gathered on spectacular Siesta Beach recently for this year's Forza Faceoff Beach Volleyball Tournament. Participation was lower than normal this year due to the effects of Hurricane Irma. Tournament Director, Richard Heiles said, "Some tournaments that were canceled over that weekend were rescheduled for this weekend lowering our attendance by about 30%."
This year’s sponsors included: 4C Iced tea – Drink Mix – Energy Stix, Spalding King of the Beach Volleyballs, Rider Sandals, Reflekt Polarized, e-Blasting.com, AC Sports Commission, Venus Swimwear, Sand Socks by Vincere, Sports Authority, HyTail Ponytail Hat, Dig Magazine, Sportime, Horry County, Volley America, South Shore Outdoors, and CORA Sports Medicine.
