This Week in Beach Volleyball: Top Teams Head Back Overseas for Warsaw Four-Star

It was an electric, if brief, welcome home for the top teams in the country, a quick stop in New York for another wild ride of an AVP before hopping on yet another flight, going through another customs line, another airport, another FIVB event.

Eleven Americans went straight from AVP New York — another excellent event put on the AVP, which seems to build momentum with each month this season — to Warsaw, Poland, for a four-star FIVB that includes most every top team in the world.

Here’s what’s on tap this week in beach volleyball:
