Long Beach State Sponsored Volleyball

Naples Car Wash Sponsors The562.Org’s Long Beach State Volleyball Coverage Again is pleased to announce that another Long Beach company has returned as a sport-specific sponsor. Naples Car Wash has stepped up again to sponsor all of The562’s coverage of the Long Beach State men’s and women’s volleyball programs through the 2023-24 school year.

“I love Long Beach State volleyball and I love the 562’s coverage of Long Beach sports, so this is a win-win,” Naples Car Wash owner Dave Ursini said last year.

Naples Car Wash is Long Beach’s best-known hand wash and detailing service, located on Naples Island adjacent to Naples Rib Company. Ursini also owns the Rib Co. which has been  a longtime supporter of local sports teams and our coverage.

“We couldn’t exist without the generosity and dedication to our community from local business owners like Dave,” said The562’s publisher, Andy Kerr. “As Long Beach’s first non-profit journalism outlet, we rely on sponsorships to continue bringing our coverage to the city free of charge. We’re grateful to Naples Car Wash for their support and for allowing us to continue covering the Beach volleyball programs.”

Once again, there’s a lot to be excited about when it comes to Long Beach State volleyball as well. The men’s team is a national championship contender and the women’s team on the rise under new head coach and LBSU alum Tyler Hildebrand.

Naples Car wash is the latest local business to sponsor The562’s award-winning local sports coverage. Previous sponsors include P2S, Inc sponsoring our Dirtbags coverage.

As a non-profit news outlet, The562 depends on reader support and sponsorships in order to cover the Long Beach community. If you’re interested in sponsoring The562’s coverage, or coverage of a specific school or sport, email or visit our Support page to get involved. Any donation made to The562 is fully tax-deductible.
