The first Dewey Beach Sports Festival will be held this weekend, June 7 to 8, at the Dickinson Street Beach. Two hundred athletes and an estimated 3,000 spectators will be in Dewey Beach for the event.
The Festival will feature the Toyota Pro Beach East Volleyball Tour and Skim USA Amateur Competition.
The Toyota Pro Beach East Volleyball Tour will showcase some of the best men and women beach volleyball players in North America in a double-elimination format. Entering its tenth year, the Toyota Tour has launched the career of some of the top players in the U.S. The number one ranked player on the Association of Volleyball Professionals Tour, Phil Dalhausser, was a regular on the Toyota Tour just two seasons ago.
Skim USA, the largest Skimboarding organization in the world and the official sanctioning body for the sport, will host an amateur East Coast skimboarding competition at the waters edge on Dickinson Street, next to the volleyball center court. More than 100 amateur athletes from across the region will compete in this fan friendly beach sports event.
Seating is free to the public on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and on Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For more information visit www.deweybeachsports.com
