Vancouver Open beach volleyball winners

1173

Vancouver didn’t exactly have beach weather this past weekend.

But, of course, that didn’t stop professional beach volleyball players from going after the Vancouver Open‘s $3,300 top prizes this past weekend.

Thirty-two teams competed on Kitsilano Beach on Saturday and Sunday (July 16 and 17), following a qualifying tournament on Friday (July 15).

When the sand settled, Christal Engle and Erin Gray of California had won the women’s gold.

The B.C.-Ontario team of Maverick Hatch and Sam Schachter bumped, set, and spiked their way to the men’s gold in what was the Vancouver Open’s 20th-anniversary event.
