Peter Nygård Beach Volleyball Tournament

Olympic gold medalists in women’s beach volleyball, Americans Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor, have been invited to take part in the 3rd Peter Nygård Beach Volleyball Tournament which is set for December at Nygård Cay.

Last December, the tournament held at the luxurious Nygård Cay Resort, attracted Beijing Olympic Games men’s U.S. quarterfinalists Sean Rosenthal and Jake Gibb. At the time, Rosenthal and Gibb told The Nassau Guardian they were using the tournament as a warmup for the Olympic trials.

Aside from the beach volleyball celebrities expected in town, Nygård expressed a desire to have a Bahamian team at the 2012 London Olympics.

“My major ambition for sports in The Bahamas is to see a beach volleyball team at the Olympic Games because we have the best beaches in the world to achieve that goal and whenever you travel to Brazil, you will see on all of the beaches volleyball nets,” said Nygård.
