Even though beach volleyball has been played by nearly everyone who’s stepped foot on the sand, many of you might not have known that there was a professional beach volleyball league called the AVP (Association of Volleyball Professionals). Fun fact: AVP athletes won at least one gold medal in every Olympics since beach volleyball became an Olympic sport in 1996. Unfortunately, the league had to cut its 2010 season short due to financial instability but as of April 5, 2012 the league is going to be back in action. If you thought that the female volleyball players are hot, wait until you see the AVP dancers. Check ’em out below.
