What can we say, we love every aspect of this sport! In 1999 we were inspired to have a small group of people get together on two nets for a day of fun in a King of the Beach type scenario in one of Adam's horse pastures! This allowed players of lower skill levels to play with players of higher skill levels; since everyone was friends or friends of friends, it was a fun one day event. We would have everyone pitch in $10 and that would allow us to order 3 or 4 pizzas and let the winner walk away with about $50. We quickly learned it wasn't about the money, it was more about the experience and the bragging rights. In the first three years, we tried a number of formats to keep it competitive and fair. By trial and error, and listening to everyone's point of view, we have devised a successful format that works. Amongst our group of friends, word spread quickly on how much fun we were having, and each year the requests to play greatly exceeded the space we had. I'm sure you can now see what inspired us to take the tournament to a larger scale.
The Mid-Atlantic region is home to thousands of volleyball players and including some of the East Coast's best players at the Open/Pro level. Local "pick-up" and private leagues have grown in numbers over the years, and most are operating at maximum capacity. Oddly enough, there was not a single Tournament in Harford County until we came along! We have grown from hosting an annual tournament to promoting a season of tournaments in 2013! Our season will start in May and end in September; of course our big King of the Grass Tourney will be in July - DON'T MISS OUT!
By promoting volleyball within the community, we wish to help better our community. We give Player's the platform to compete amongst others within their skill level and we give Spectators a day of fun the entire family can enjoy. So please, come out and play, get noticed, and most importantly - HAVE FUN!
All the Best,
