Around Town: Footvolley championship tournament kicks off Friday in Huntington Beach

Fresh off the U.S. Open of Surfing and the Surf City Pickleball Tournament, Huntington Beach is ready to host another championship athletic event this weekend — the 2017 California Footvolley World Championship.

Footvolley, created in Brazil in 1965, is like soccer on the beach — or more precisely, beach volleyball in which the players aren’t allowed to use their arms and hands.

The tournament will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday at Huntington City Beach, 325 Pacific Coast Hwy.

It’s free to watch. For more information, call (949) 701-9986.
