We’ve partnered with the AVP to increase opportunities for members. Last year was a huge success and 2022 is even bigger and better for our members!


All CBVA members get the benefit of both organizations for one discounted price. For only $35, you get both the CBVA annual membership plus an additional 365 added to your AVP Gold membership. Not only are you able to earn CBVA points and ratings, you will be awarded coveted AVP points for every single tournament finish. In addition to points, you get all the awesome perks--like discounts on Wilson and AVP gear.


This year some of our events feature increased points, an increased cash prize, and two Wild Card entries into AVP Main Draw events. The two Wild Cards will be awarded based on a team's best two out of three finishes from the series.

Series Stipulations


How are the bids to the Pro Tour events awarded?


- The teams with the best two of three event series results will receive a Pro Tour Wild Card bid. Athletes must compete as a team to be awarded series points. In the case of a tie in series points, the third event result will be used as the tie break. If one team only participates in two events and the other team they are tied with has participated in all three events, the advantage will be rewarded to the team that committed to the entire series. If there is still a tie, then overall AVP Rank will be used to determine the winning teams.

- All players that earn AVP Main Draw Wild Cards must satisfy the citizenship eligibility requirements which are outlined in the AVP Pro Athlete Handbook.

- The team must enter the agreed event by the registration deadline. Winning a bid does not automatically register the team in the AVP Main Draw event.

- Any changes to the winning team due to unforeseen circumstances are subject to approval of the AVP.


Can bids be trickled down?


Bids can be trickled down in the following situations:


- Winning team declines their bid or is already placed in the Main Draw of the event it qualifies into.

- Teams winning multiple earned Wild Cards to the same event; either from another series or separate Wild Card program.

- One or both players do not satisfy the citizenship requirements.

- Trickle down Wild Cards can only be awarded to the second place team.
