The Mexican Open Beach Volleyball Open will serve as preparation for many who will participate the following week in the tournament at the National Olympiad based in Chihuahua.
This tournament is part of the festivities for the 100 years of Puerto Vallarta as a municipality, and beach volleyball, Razo said, is linked to the history of the city, because the first tournament held in Mexico was in Puerto Vallarta in 1989.
