This episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, is our semi-monthly, and always popular, feature: Our fan question Summer Mailbag. There has been more beach volleyball than we know what to do with, certainly the most since we launched the podcast back in October of 2017. Mountains of questions ensued. As always, we thank you guys and gals so much for listening, for asking the questions that are so fun to answer. We did our best to get to as many as we could in just under an hour and a half. A few we did chat about were:

  • Why isn’t Bally’s and the AVP streaming court two? On a related note, why are the stands so small?
  • Talk about Kelly Cheng and Betsi Flint winning Hamburg!
  • Are Trevor’s guarantees as good for the team as they are the AVP?
  • What’s up with the tracking devices players wear on center court? Do we like them?
  • How good is Miles Partain?

And, as always, so much more!
