The Huntington Beach Open is the third and final leg, following Miami and Dallas, of the Cuervo Gold Crown series. A part of this year's AVP season, the series' prize is an additional $100,000 bonus given to the top men's and women's teams who accumulate the most points in the three tournaments and is in addition to the money won at the three individual tournaments.
The Cuervo Gold Crown champion men's and women's teams will be awarded their hefty paychecks at the conclusion of the Huntington Beach Open on Sunday.
"It's monumental for us, historic," Leonard Armato, commissioner of the AVP said, of paychecks that will be the largest winners' checks ever presented by the AVP. "One men's team and one women's team will be the recipients of a very big payday Sunday."
