9780981753096: Order on the Court: Pro Beach Volleyball a Rally for Respect & Recognition

On the worldwide stage, Beach Volleyball rules - no ifs, ands, or butts! Its fast action, sex appeal, and beach party vibe lure millions of television viewers to what NBC proclaimed the hottest ticket during the Olympic Games. The United States has long dominated this sport. Yet, as these Olympic champions return home, the afterglow rapidly burns out. The ever-optimistic Association of Volleyball Professionals (AVP) always hopes for an Olympic spike that will sweep its Pro Beach Volleyball tour into the sports mainstream. Instead, this provocative sport struggles year after year. What gives? What's going on underneath this lustrous sun-baked layer of sun, fun, and buns? Order On The Court strips away this glistening front, revealing the dark clouds that smog Pro Beach Volleyball's visions of respect and recognition. This benchmark book not only dives deep into the sport's turbulent and amusing times, but also traces its history and projects its future.
