What: The Beachball Volleyball Tournament is a huge all campus event that you will not want to miss. This will be our 27th annual tournament this fall. 1200-1500 students participate each year in this giant volleyball tournament played with 40" beachballs (OMNIKIN BALLS).
Who: The entire on campus population has been broken down into 56 separate co-recreational teams formed according to the resident hall brother/sister units (55 teams) and one (1) Off Campus team. All on campus students should contact their RA to sign up and off campus students wanting to participate should e-mail Mark Mathews.
How: The format will include a round robin tournament within 14 divisions (four teams/division) lasting from 3:30-6:00 p.m. The top two teams from each division will then enter a single elimination tournament played from 7:00-8:30 p.m. to determine the 2012 Beachball Volleyball Champions. And yes, championship T-shirts will be awarded to the winners.
Dress: Each team is encouraged to dress according to some type of theme. The "Best Dressed" team will be awarded a pizza party the day of the tournament during the dinner break.
Why: The purpose of the tournament is to provide the opportunity for students to establish a team spirit among their brother/sister units, meet many other students, participate in a physical activity, and have a great time.
