Manhattan Beach Open will be kicking it old skool

by Jason Schock at 8:32 PM

With the AVP out of the picture, the 2010 Manhattan Beach Open will be kicking it old skool: big court, sideout scoring, white leather ball, no let serves.

There will also be no accompanying circus of sponsor tents, vinyl signage, or grandstands that the AVP liked to drag along with them. Just sand, nets, players and fans. Just like Baby Jesus wanted.

It sounds like it's definitely worth checking out. You may not see the Manhattan Beach Open like this again for some time.

Fri 8/20 -  Sun 8/22

Hmm, now that you mention it baby Jesus probably had white hairless balls frequently exposed to sand.
