The Wildwoods’ Morey’s Piers presents a Beach Sports Weekend featuring lacrosse, field hockey and track events on Saturday, July 18 and Sunday, July 19 on the Wildwoods’ award-winning beaches.
This weekend’s events – one of the only beach sports tournaments in the world – give players of all ages a chance to experience each sport in a new and exciting way. All competitions will take place on the beach north of Mariner’s Pier at Schellenger Avenue in Wildwood.
The Beach Meet – the only multi-event track meet in the country held entirely on the beach – will be a two-day competition consisting of Pole Vault, Long Jump, Triple Jump, and Shot Put. Participants can register for an individual event, two events (Triple Jump, Long Jump, or Shot Put), or complete the Triathlon (Long Jump, Shot Put, and 800 Meter Run). The Pole Vault competition is at 10 a.m. on Saturday, while the remaining competitions will take place on Sunday between 10 a.m. and noon.
The Beach Meet, a timed one-mile beach race, will be held on Saturday only – first gun goes off at 10 a.m. and medals will be awarded to the top five finishers in each seeded race. Both days will also feature Beach Hockey and Beach Lacrosse tournaments.
