Miami Beach sizzled this past weekend when the Model Beach Volleyball Tournament 2010 was produced by a team who has been bringing Miami Beach the greatest volleyball events over the past 18 years.
The Tournament took place on Saturday and Sunday of April 10th and 11th at Nikki Beach, located at 1 Ocean Drive in South Beach.
The two-day event featured eight top model agencies and one celebrity athlete team, competing in a co-ed beach volleyball tournament. The agencies included Next, CGM, Elite, MC2, Mega, Front, Green Agency and Wilhelmina.
On the first day of the competition play consisted of a round robin format. Teams played each other for seating. The second day was a double elimination bracket, with finals held on Sunday. Also on Sunday, the winning team was presented with the MBVT CUP.
