About the fab50
The inaugural 2022 fab50 program was an incredible success! It was a blue chip program that everyone involved will agree offered one of a kind (and for some, once in a lifetime!) beach volleyball experiences that very intentionally focused on training, competition, community, athlete bonding and, last but not least, mental and emotional athlete development.
The selection of the fab50 and its summit offerings will continue to be a core program for p1440 in 2023 with a few tweaks.
Onward + upward, together.

fab50 2022 recap
fab50 - 2023
What does being a fab50 athlete mean?
Being selected as a p1440 fab50 athlete signifies the fact that you’re a stud! It means that you have separated yourself from the pack and are deserving of this exclusive recognition.
What is the goal of the program?
The goal of the fab50 program is to bring together the top athletes our sport has to offer in order to train, compete, elevate and grow. Iron sharpens iron, and this program is meant to do exactly that. p1440 and our dedicated staff will not only work to enhance your individual volleyball skills and capabilities, but we’ll work to elevate the entire sport of beach volleyball via this program and our Fab 50 ambassadors; our focus will be to prepare you for battle on and off the court and to also help build their personal name brand awareness through our platform as well. The world has shifted in this area, and we want to set our athletes up for success on and off the court.
The 2022 fab50 selection process was as follows:
In 2022, the fab50 athletes were nominated by the club directors that participated in p1440 programming in 2021. These athletes were then evaluated and chosen by the p1440 team based on 2021 performance finishes and conversations with the nominating directors. If you were not nominated by your Director in 2022, you were not considered for this group.
The 2023 fab50 selection process will be a TRYOUT format:
fab50 athletes are notified of acceptance into the program after tryouts and will receive an invite to two Summits to train with the best.
The athletes pay for travel costs and p1440 pays for room & board, training, swag kit, transportation to/from the airport, training site and hotel.
Final fab 50 players will also get a player profile on the p1440 fab50 platform page, an apparel kit along with other sponsor items.
