Spotlight - Beach Volleyball Database

June 6th, 1999
 
 
Why start the database?

Dennis' love for rankings and new found love for beach volleyball sparked the beginnings of what became the bvbdb.com.  In 1997, after seeing the AVP's ranking formula in their media guide and because the AVP wasn't publishing their rankings ( or much else! ), Dennis decided he would do his own rankings and put them up on the Internet.  In the early development stages of the then AVP Beach Pit, he started digging around and finding past winners.  He quickly found that the AVP did not keep accurate records and was actually told once that he will NEVER be able to compile a list of Karch's and Sinjin's wins.  Fueled by the challenge, Dennis began the quest.  He called several organizations like the AVP and Volleyball Magazine and was eventually matched up with Chris Marlowe.  Chris had already compiled a list of tournament results with Joe Jares for 1949-1982.

That was the beginning and hundreds of hours later, the database is online, he's perched up on top of a huge pile of old Volleyball Magazines (sent by the good faith of Tim Simmons) and is busily filling in the missing holes.
