The women’s open qualifier will kick off a citywide celebration of beach volleyball, complete with panoramic views of Lower Manhattan, the New York Harbor, Governors Island, the Statue of Liberty, and the Brooklyn Bridge.

An 85-acre sustainable waterfront park, Brooklyn Bridge Park stretches 1.3 miles along the East River shoreline.
The AVP Kingston New York City Open is the second tournament on the AVP’s 2015 schedule – the only stop in the Northeast – and brings the AVP Tour to Manhattan for the first time in the tour’s 33-year history. As previously announced, Thursday’s men’s open qualifier, as well as men’s and women’s main-draw play Friday-Sunday, will be held at Hudson River Park’s Pier 26/25 on Manhattan’s lower west side.
