SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hint® Inc., the healthy lifestyle brand known for its delicious unsweetened flavored water, revealed today it has signed on to be the exclusive water and sunscreen sponsor of The World Series of Beach Volleyball (WSOBV), taking place July 13 – 16 in Long Beach, Calif. Hint’s variety of natural fruit flavored waters will be refreshing athletes throughout the tournament and available to consumers at concessions and through onsite sampling and activations. Three-time gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings will be wearing the hint logo and sharing her love of hint with her fans throughout the competition. The internationally recognized event will air on ABC, ESPN, and ESPN2, and will stream live on ESPN3 via WatchESPN and the ESPN app.
“Hint’s mission is to make being healthy easy and enjoyable, from drinking more water to protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful rays,” said Kara Goldin, CEO and founder, Hint, Inc. “The World Series of Beach Volleyball is not only the largest beach volleyball event in the U.S., but the sun soaked sport has natural synergies with our brand, and we’re proud to be keeping the athletes and attendees well hydrated and safe from the sun.”
Since its launch in 2005, hint has helped consumers live healthy lifestyles by making water taste great without sugar or diet sweeteners.
“Staying hydrated is essential when playing volleyball all day in the sun, so I’m very excited to have hint on as a sponsor this year,” said Walsh Jennings. “I love that hint comes in so many delicious flavors but has no sweeteners of any kind, so I can drink as much as I want on and off the court.”
In addition to keeping Walsh Jennings hydrated on the court, hint will be protecting her from the Southern California sun with its new hint® sunscreen, which uses hint fruit essences to transform applying sunscreen into a joyful experience. Available in Pear, Grapefruit and Pineapple, there’s a sunscreen scent for everyone to love. The SPF 30 mist offers an enjoyable sensory experience and is free of oxybenzone and parabens. Consumers attending the tournament will also have the opportunity to stay protected and sample the sunscreen.
Now in its fifth year, the World Series of Beach Volleyball has grown to be the largest ever all-encompassing beach volleyball and lifestyle event in the world, featuring thousands of players and professional, junior and amateur matches. Debuting a new “Cup” format, the Presidents Volleyball Cup will give spectators the chance to see the best professional players, including American favorites Walsh Jennings, Sara Hughes, April Ross and Phil Dalhausser, go head-to-head against top teams from around the world.
