"We know that all the excitement of a full-fledged beach volleyball tournament will add yet another layer to the fun, family festival atmosphere of our event.

"We are thrilled to partner with IndyFest, as this is a great family event where we will be able to highlight the NationalVolleyball League and our great athletes. This will be a unique venue for us to introduce beach volleyball to new fans that may not otherwise have the opportunity to be exposed to the sport," stated NVL founder, Albert Hannemann. "We are bringing the California lifestyle to Milwaukee and it's going to be a fun experience for everyone."
