NCAA Gulf Shores

NCAA Beach Volleyball Championship

May 5-7, 2023

16 of the country’s best beach volleyball teams will battle it out on Alabama’s white-sand beaches May 5-7. This year’s event is once again open to the public, and we invite you to join us courtside for all the action. 

Witness history being made during the NCAA Beach Volleyball Championship in Gulf Shores as the eighth champion is crowned on May 7. On Friday, 16 teams consisting of five pairs will compete in single elimination duels with the eight winning teams advancing to the quarter and semi finals the following day. The final two teams will play for the championship on Sunday afternoon. Five collegiate courts and five practice courts are set up on our beautiful white-sand beaches.

The student-athletes, coaches and fans will bring their intensity and love for the sport to the Alabama Gulf Coast and leave it all on the beach until there’s one team left standing. Gulf Shores | Orange Beach Sports & Events, the city of Gulf Shores and the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) have hosted this event since its inaugural tournament in 2016 and are thrilled to continue to host through 2024.
