Tournament Information

“Due to the actions taken by national, regional, and local sports organizations, and the decisions made by state and local government, we regretfully and reluctantly have to cancel the 2020 WV Spikefest.

Entry fees will be refunded to each club.

Hosting Spikefest is a tradition that we look forward to every year. However, we believe it is in the best interest of the participants, coaches, and their families that we follow the recommendations set by government and health officials. We do not want to put people at risk, despite our love for volleyball.


We hope that everyone stay healthy through this crisis, and look forward to having Spikefest next year.



See you in 2021!”
