It’s go time. Pairs Volleyball is back, and ready to roll with our first Pairs tournament of the season.The action kicks off on September 27th, 9:00am at Auburn High in Dartmouth. For those of you who have not played in a Pairs Tournament before, be sure to check out our FAQ page. For you seasoned veterans out there, welcome back.
As most of you already know, there are a couple of changes to Pairs Volleyball this year. Most notable is the price. We are forced to raise the price per team to $35 due to the rising price of gas. Nah, just kidding about the gas thing. HRM has increased the fees to rent their facilities along with opening and closing fees, and custodial time (our fees have been particularly increased because of an error in the rental agreement over the last few years). To make a long story short, we could not afford to run the Pairs Tournament without a few changes.
There will only be prizes for the top four teams at each tournament.
We have eliminated the 50$ cash prize for first place teams.
The cost to enter the tournament has increased by$5 per pair (that’s less than the price of a Starbucks coffee)
A few things that have not changed.
1. We still take a maximum of 19 teams at every tournament to ensure maximum playing time, at a competitive level.
2. Payment is still required before you are considered to be registered. We take cheques, email money transfer, and Paypal.
3. We are still hitting the pub after every event for some
boozing socializing, and to give out the great Volleywear
We look forward to seeing you all in a little over three weeks. To register for the tournament, click here
