p1440 Dedicates 25 Nets to Huntington Beach
On Tuesday morning, professional beach volleyball player and three-time Olympic gold and one-time Olympic bronze medalist, Kerri Walsh Jennings and her event series and digital community, p1440, announced the sponsorship of 25 beach volleyball courts on the north and south side of the Huntington Beach Pier.
p1440 is providing p1440 branded nets to form courts in the community for the next three years, so anyone can pick up a volleyball and play at the beach. The event was kicked off with a ribbon cutting ceremony before fans were given the opportunity to meet Walsh Jennings and watch her train live with her Olympic partner, Brooke Sweat. p1440’s Olympic coaches and more than 25 of p1440’s development players were also in attendance, giving fans the opportunity to meet them and watch them practice.
“I fell in love with the game of beach volleyball in Huntington Beach and so I have a very meaningful connection to the community—it’s where my career got its start. Huntington is where Misty and I began our partnership and it’s where I first met Casey Jennings, my wonderful husband. Fast forward 20 years, and now there’s going to be an abundance of p1440 beach volleyball courts here! It really feels like I’ve come full circle as I train for one final Olympic run with my partner, Brooke Sweat, and I couldn’t be more excited,” said Walsh Jennings, co-founder of p1440. “I love Huntington Beach and hold it close to my heart, so having p1440 give back to the community in this way, by bringing these nets to the beach, is very special to me. Some of our goals at p1440 are to sincerely connect with our communities and to help spread the love of beach volleyball to the masses; these courts will be up for the next three years, and it’s so fun to think about the thousands and thousands of locals and visitors from around the world, picking up a ball, playing a game and finding joy within the sport.”
