How do I register for a tournament?

Before you can register you must have a partner.  Both partners must have a current CBVA annual membership ($25 and is good from Jan 1st to Dec 31st).  One partner (not both) registers the team for the tournament .  Just click on register and follow the promts.  You will receive a receipt by email.

How do I cancel my registration?

If it's more than 24 hours in advance just email us at and the credit card you used for registration will be credited the full amount.  If it is less than 24 hours in advance you should also call the tournament director so they can free up your spot and place another player in the pool.

What time should I arrive?

It's best to arrive between 8-8:15 so you have time to park and get settled before you check in at 8:30.  Play begins at 9:00 unless specified on your registration receipt.(Dockweiler has a little different times)

Can women play in a mens tournament?

No, even if they are "as good" as the men it can affect things in unpredicted ways.

Levels of Play offered

  • Open or AAA: This is the highest level of play
  • AA: Very strong experienced beach players
  • A: Have developed some strong skills
  • B: Intermediate
  • Unrated: New to the beach game

Can I play any level I want?

If you are an unrated player play the level you think you belong in. You'll quickly learn if you were right and can adjust accordingly next time.

If you have earned a rating, you may play at or above your rating but may not play below your earned rating (even in a coed).

How long does my rating hold?

Your rating holds for the season you earn it and the following year.  On Jan 1st if the rating is not re-earned it will drop down one rating each January.

Can youth members participate in adult tournaments?

Yes, as long as they are of the level of the tournament we welcome advanced youth players.

When I buy a membership when is it good to?

Membership runs Jan 1st to Dec 31st.

What is the differnce between a "AAA" and an "Open"

We have two types of AAA tournaments.  One is listed as AAA, the other is listed as Open. Open charges and extra $20 that goes into the prize pool.  That is the only difference in the two.  Some players like having a prize pool, some don't, so we try to offer some of both.

Can rated youth players still play in youth tournaments?

We encourage our youth players to play in adult tournaments and earn ratings.  It does not preclude them from playing youth tournaments in the future.

When does online registration close?

To guarantee a playing spot and avoid a $5.00 registration surcharge, sign up online before 3:00pm the day preceding the tournament. 
Online registration will not be accepted after 3:00 pm the day prior to tournament.
