2015 Payette River Games


Dig out the shorts, bikinis, shades, and hats and get ready to watch some of the best local beach volleyball players dig, bump, set, and spike their way to beach volleyball supremacy. For the last 2 years, Jason Weaver and his teammates have been crowned PRG Volleyball Champion. Will they be able to defend their championship this year and go for the 3-peat or will they be overthrown?

Teams will battle it out on our beautiful riverside court, surrounded by comfortable grassy seating, for beach volleyball supremacy. Rally scoring will be used, to ensure a rough and rowdy, scoring on every serve, crowd-pleasing event.

The best part: Our competition will be led by the legendary, 2x time Olympic Gold Medalist Olympic Gold Medalist Dave Saunders and ESPN Sideline reporter Heather Cox. Dave will also be hosting a clinic on Sunday June 21 and Heather will be interviewing the athletes (she reported on the 2008 Volleyball Olympics)
