Fittingly labeled the “Retro Rocky Point Invitational Beach Volleyball Tournament”, Luis Garrido of Outta Town Productions (OTP) is reviving his Beach Volleyball Tournament after a one year hiatus. Technically, the tournament is an “open” event rather than an invitational, since Luis invites all beach volleyball aficionados to enjoy a weekend of fun competition on the beach in Rocky Point.
Held in Rocky Point for 19 consecutive years on Sandy Beach (go to https://www.sonoranresorts.mx/?p=2206 and https://www.sonoranresorts.mx/?p=2367 for our previous OTP stories.), popular demand from his loyal beach volleyball players led Luis to resume the popular tournament here in our little slice of paradise. This year the event will be held on the beach at the beautiful Sonoran Sky beach front condominium resort on the weekend of April 6 and 7, 2013. (It was previously held in front of the Sonoran Sea.)
Outta Town Productions have a reputation for well organized events that emphasize the fun of competition and include more than beach volleyball in Rocky Point. They also hold the annual “InSANDity” Beach Obstacle Course Challenge here. Their loyal followers are mostly young, active singles and couples who participate in other OTP adventures such as river rafting and snow skiing in Arizona, Colorado and Utah as well as outdoor and indoor volleyball tournaments in the Phoenix area. They also hold obstacle course challenges in locations around the southwestern U.S.

“The Outta Town Productions Retro Rocky Point Beach Volleyball Tournament brings back the social, more laid back, fun-on-the-beach atmosphere we started with 20 years ago,” says Luis Garrido who, along with his wife, Karen, own a condo at the Sonoran Sun.
We agree, Luis, and look forward to having this great event back on our beaches in front of another Sonoran Resorts property
