38th Annual Mexico International Volleyball Tournament

For almost 40 years, a gaggle of volleyball players has made the trek across the border to participate in the Mexico International Volleyball Tournament. This year, 87 men's teams and 53 women's teams competed (a total of 280 players).

The tournament is a weighted draw, so no one comes down with a teammate, and you never know who you'll get. Winners receive Quiksilver gear, their name on the giant trophy, and free lodging for the next year's event.

The event has a reputation for raucous parties, and cheap beer and tacos are served all night between Saturday's pool play matches and Sunday's playoffs.

If these photos entice you to join the pilgrimage next year, just don't forget your sand socks. As it says on the website, "The sand gets hot! We are serious! It gets really, really hot!"

This year's women's tournament was won by Melissa Hinkley and Esther Kim. The men's champions were Ben Brockman and Sacha Simoes. With the win, Brockman becomes half of the first mother-son duo to ever win the tournament. Brockman's mother Debby won in 1985.
