City Beach continues to be one of the showcase venues for beach volleyball in the state hosting the Think Again High School Beach Cup over the weekend. Dominating City Beach’s picturesque shoreline, the 16-court event saw WA’s next generation of beach volleyball athletes battle it out for school recognition and personal bragging rights.
Volleyball WA CEO Robyn Kuhl called the weekend “a celebration of the growing talent in our state and our sport.”
