Wok's Up Beach Volleyball Club

Heading to Seaside Beach Volleyball

Roman Onishchenko and Denis Zhukov are local AAA beach volleyball players headed to Seaside for the world's largest beach volleyball competition this weekend. They play for Wok's Up Beach Volleyball Club/Best Burger & BBQ in SE Portland and are contenders this weekend. They have done very well this season, representing our area throughout the Pacific NW.

Seaside will have over 1000 teams participating at all levels from juniors to Masters Divisions. Roman and Denis are arguably the best beach volleyball team in the NW.

They have won 2 of the 4 beach tournaments they have played in this year, and have placed in the other two. Roman and another partner also won a big grass tournament at the Russian festival this year.

They won the first Alki Tournament this year and last weekend, lost to a Canadian team. Olympic athletes compete in these tournaments.

The Wok's Up/Best Burger & BBQ team is Oregon's best chance to take Seaside. There are several professional teams coming in from California.

Beach volleyball is gaining momentum in Oregon, and Roman and Denis are great ambassadors for the sport.
