Mike Dodd, five time Manhattan Beach Open winner, joins Paper Courts

Mike Dodd digs a ball.
It wouldn’t be wrong to put Mike Dodd on the Mount Rushmore of beach volleyball.
The man won five Manhattan Beach Opens and secured a silver medal in the 1996 Olympic Games, the first in which beach volleyball was a sport.
On Paper Courts, Mike Dodd and I discuss his first love of basketball, being drafted by the San Diego Clippers, the founding of the AVP Tour and much more.
You can catch all past episodes, including my conversations with Karch Kiraly, Phil Dalhausser, Jake Gibb, Trevor Crabb, Sean Scott, Theo Brunner, Todd Rogers, and many more, on iTunes here!
