Tournament site info:
The doors of the playing site will open at 7:00 AM. Visiting team camps will be in the designated camping areas communicated the day of the event. Each team will be given ample camping space. Keep all coolers in cars. Coolers are prohibited in and outside of facilities hosting OVR-sanctioned events. Setting up tables and/or cooking by teams or their support staff, fans, coaches, or parents is also prohibited at OVR-sanctioned events. A full concession stand with reasonable prices will be provided at the tournament site. We are excited to announce, along with the traditional menu, our concession stand will feature MJ Subs and sides for the 2024 season!
We have balcony seating as well as limited space for court seating with personal camping chairs. No chairs will be permitted on the end lines or between the courts. Each team will have a designated box for seating which will be clearly marked. All spectators from the same team will be asked to sit together. This ensures all teams have equal opportunity to be represented with fans on the floor.
Teams withdrawing after December 1st, 2023 are responsible for the full entry fee unless a replacement team is found.
