Spike It

The Beach Volleyball Major Series returns to Broward, with the competition drawing to an action-packed conclusion during the first weekend in March. World-class male and female players from around the globe—battling for a total purse of $600,000—will take to the sand at Fort Lauderdale Beach Park for quarterfinal, seminfinal and medal matches, starting Friday, March 2, and continuing through Sunday, March 4.

Last year, two-person teams from Brazil captured the top spots in both the men’s and women’s division. However, look for Fort Lauderdale’s Nick Lucena and teammate Phil Dalhausser (they took the bronze in 2017) to challenge defending champions Alvaro Filho and Saymon Barbosa from Brazil in the men’s competition.

Of course, it’s not just the volleyball that makes this one of the most popular sporting weekends of the year in Broward. The Beach Village features interactive attractions, vendor booths and food stands; tickets to the Beach Friends Lounge provide roof seating, and free beer and wine; and VIP tickets for the Beach Majors Club grants access to the Beach Friends Lounge, gourmet catered bites, the VIP Sundowner events, and Beach Party Nights (with an open bar from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.).
