On August 11, Asbury Park on the Jersey Shore will again host its now-annual beach volleyball tournament. Three levels of play, lots of fun and sun, tanlines and sweating.

If you'd like to put a team together, please visit www.apvolleyball.org for more information on registering. Or if you have any questions, feel free to email me at APBVT@aol.com.

If you're more of an athletic supporter, come to the beach at Fifth Avenue in Asbury Park that day and enjoy a day on the sand surrounded by over a hundred gay and lesbian athletes grunting and sweating for your enjoyment.

If you haven't discovered Asbury Park yet, it's easier to get to from Manhattan than any other gay beach. Train from Penn Station, and you're in town about a dozen blocks and a speedy cheap cab ride from the ocean. No jitney, no bus, no ferry, no hassles. And we've got bars and food steps off the sand.
