HERMOSA BEACH, Calif. — As the 2022 AVP Tour season continued through August, the strangest — and most welcome — of streaks somehow continued: There had yet to be a repeat winner on the women’s side of the Tour. It’s an amazing thing, what happens when April Ross isn’t playing beach volleyball: Everyone else has a chance. Since Donald Sun resurrected the AVP in 2012, Ross has won 33 AVP titles in 48 tournaments...

AVP Phoenix provides poetic endings for Crabb-Sander, Kloth-Nuss
To some, maybe it seemed an odd choice. In the wake of Jake Gibb’s retirement following the 2021 season, here was Taylor Crabb, the hottest free agent on the beach volleyball market. Could have had any American blocker he wanted. Yet, months earlier, he had hinted that his next partner might take some people by surprise, that it wouldn’t be the all-Hawai’ian team many expected, with Crabb and Tri Bourne.

The leadup to Friday evening may have posed more questions than any other event on the 2022 AVP calendar combined. What would the setup for the AVP Phoenix Gold Series Championships look like in the massive Footprint Center, home to the Phoenix Suns? What would the attendance be? Would an arena impact the play or style of beach volleyball we’ve become accustomed to seeing on a natural beach?.

AVP returns to Phoenix for first time in 25 years with Gold Series Championships
For once this weekend — maybe, hopefully — Betsi Flint and Kelly Cheng will have the crowd on their side. Flint doesn’t quite understand why the crowd has tended to favor opposing teams for the most part of this 2022 season, though the simple fact that they have had the best season of any on the AVP thus far — their 13,963 points this year are more than 2,000 above Kristen Nuss and Taryn Kloth

SANDCAST: Dain Blanton, as ever, is making the most of every opportunity
HERMOSA BEACH, Calif. — It was late April, 1999, and Dain Blanton hadn’t heard a word from Kent Steffes, his supposed running mate for the 2000 Olympics. “Radio silent,” Blanton recalled, laughing at the memory, on SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter.
