Volleyball Vacations  was established over 13 years ago by AVP pro beach volleyball champion Albert Hannemann. It was created because AL-B noticed that every volleyball player he met had the same love for the game if they played professionally or recreationally. That's when it became a goal of his to offer to these volleyball enthusiasts who love the sport an opportunity to meet, improve their skills, socialize, and even play with the best pro beach volleyball players and coaches in the world. People come on these trips mostly from the United States and Canada to share their passion for life and volleyball.
