This episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter is our always-popular, semi-monthly mailbag episode. And boy oh boy did we have questions for this one, largely on the same topic: What’s up with the new AVP and its proposed league model? We delve into that for a large portion of the episode, as well as:

  • What are our Paris 2024 predictions?
  • What does off-season look like for professional beach volleyball players?
  • What are our best, worst, and funniest moments of 2023?
  • Are Russians allowed back on tour?

That, and a whole lot more. Thank you as always for submitting questions. If you want to submit or have us chat about a topic, DM Tri or Travis on Instagram and we’ll put it into the pool of questions!
