Storms, rains and heavy winds forced the suspension of the men’s final and the cancellation of the women’s final at the AVP St. Petersburg Open.
“Due to severe weather, and to protect the safety of fans, players and staff, the AVP Pro Beach Volleyball Tour’s St. Pete Open at Vinoy Park was cut short,” said the AVP in an official statement.
Weather had been a factor throughout the previous two and a half days, with heavy winds and rains even delaying the start of the tournament
