MIKASA Sports is pleased to announce two new partnerships in the Gulf Coast area. One is with the Louisiana Outdoor Volleyball Association (LOVA) and White Sands Volleyball courts, a prominent beach volleyball complex in southeast Louisiana, and one is with Emerald Coast Volleyball, host of several beach volleyball tournaments in Florida. Both organizations have signed an exclusive agreement with MIKASA for 3 years that makes the King of the Beach Pro volleyball the official ball of all Emerald Coast and White Sands/LOVA leagues and tournaments.
“It is great to team up with a company that is committed to working with grassroots volleyball, as well as the world’s best,” says Bruce White of White Sands. Mike Minch of Emerald Coast states, “I am very excited to have the Mikasa King of the Beach ball back with us once again as the Official Ball of all of our Emerald Coast Volleyball events.”
