To help promote the title sponsor, players on the stadium court at the AVP Championships near the Huntington Beach Pier crammed their lengthy, sweaty bodies into small convertible smart cars that served as benches that must have lacked supreme comfort.

The men's duo of Costa Mesa's Jake Gibb and Casey Patterson of Huntington Beach, as well as the favored women's tandem of Costa Mesa's April Ross and Kerri Walsh Jennings were both upset in the semifinals on Sunday.
