Video: Kathy Gregory, Kathy Hanley court dedication

The Friends of East Beach Association dedicated a women’s court at East Beach in the names of Kathy Gregory and Kathy Hanley, one of the greatest teams in beach volleyball history.

Gregory and Hanley started their partnership on the court in the mid-1970s. They won 12 Open tournaments together, including two Santa Barbara Opens at East Beach.

Saturday’s dedication ceremony drew about 150 people, including former beach partners and opponents of Gregory and Hanley and some of Gregory’s former players from UCSB.

Speakers included local player Lynn Luft, former Gregory partner Nancy Cohen, Laz Kiraly and Mark “Cubby” Jacobs.
