The first tour of the National Beach Volleyball Tournament 2017 took place at Nhat Le beach (Dong Hoi City, Quang Binh Province), held by the General Department of Sports and Physical Training, Vietnam Volleyball Federation and Quang Binh Provincial Department of Culture and Sports. The three-tour tournament was joined by two teams of Quang Binh and over 30 teams from 11 units, cities and provinces in Vietnam, such as Khanh Hoa, Ho Chi Minh City, Hai Phong, and Da Nang.
 
According to the organization committee, most of the units yielded their most outstanding athletes to the first tour although it was just a competition to check and evaluate the quality of athletes. Some of the most excellent athlete pairs at the first tour were Son-Dang, Khoi-Quy, Mai-Hoa (Ho Chi Minh City), Trong Quoc-Thanh Vinh, Phuc-Khanh, Thanh Loan-Tran Thi Trong (Sanna Khanh Hoa), Hau-Huyen (Hai Phong). 
 
Sanna Khanh Hoa joined the first tour with five male pairs and three female pairs. They aimed to defend the championship title in men’s event and get into top two in women’s event. Khanh Hoa’s athletes performed beyond expectation. They secured five out of six medals of the tournament. Specifically, Trong Quoc-Thanh Vinh and Nguyen Thi Mai-Thanh Tram of Sanna Khanh Hoa won gold medals in men’s and women’s event respectively. The athletes of the coastal province also won two silvers in men’s and women’s event and one bronze in men’s event. Additionally, Trong Quoc and Nguyen Thi Mai were also awarded the title of the most excellent athletes.
 
As reported by Tran Quang Thuong, Director of Khanh Hoa Provincial Sports Technique Training Center, in comparison with some localities having strong volleyball movement in the country, the quality of Khanh Hoa’s volleyball has been quite highly appreciated by professionals. At present, Khanh Hoa’s Trong Quoc-Thanh Vinh has been the number one athlete pair in Vietnam when getting more than 15 gold medals in the national tournaments. In the meanwhile, the female athletes of Khanh Hoa have always been top three positions. Khanh Hoa’s beach volleyball athletes have been often selected for the national beach volleyball team.
