Beach Bums puts a new twist on beach volleyball tournaments, with music, prizes, the support of the local community, a fun, lively atmosphere, and fundraisers for prominent charities or causes. Our monthly tournaments consistently draw a core, tight-knit group of local volleyball players as well as new players who want to get into the sport and visiting players from across the country.
Come dressed to win because every month has a costume contest. Past themes have included super heroes, famous duos, and ABC, for anything but clothes. After a day of play that will continue well past sunset, stick around for the after-party, where we gather for food and drinks at local establishments and celebrate the day late into the night.
We also raise funds for a particular charity each month. We purposely keep our registration fees low so that you can put more money towards these great causes. Win raffle prizes and purchase merchandise while knowing you’re making a difference.

SHORTLY ABOUT US
Beach Bums’ Founders (from left to right) Prem Persaud, Rachael Manzanares, Jess Bakaylar, and Dominic Nelson
It began with the four of us, who all met through beach volleyball. Because of our shared love of the game, we started hosting some small friendly tournaments in Gulfport in late 2013. Within a few months, we had expanded to 44 teams and there was a strong demand for further growth.
