The Hilton HHonors Beach Volleyball Challenge is an invitational tournament that took place last year in Hawaii. It was a tournament that brought together the best American and Chinese beach volleyball teams of both genders to play in Honolulu.
This year, Canada has been added to the mix and Ben Saxton, Chaim Schalk, Jamie Broder and Kristina Valjas have been invited down to Hawaii to join the tournament. Below is the schedule of events from the Hilton website.
Some of the matches will be broadcast on NBC in the US and SportsNet here in Canada. We do not know if they will be live yet, but check back here and we'll try to grab some live streams or TV schedules for ya.
