Volleyball Tournament


What’s a beach party without volleyball? That’s right… On the River will feature both a 4-on-4 co-ed and a 6-on-6 co-ed sand volleyball tournament during the 21+ Beach Bash on the river in downtown South Bend in the middle of the summer – it doesn’t really get much better than that.

PS – Teen Night & Family Day will not feature a tournament…but we’ll have free, open play.

How it Works

There are two brackets, a Recreational level 6-on-6 and a Competitive level 4-on-4. We can only accomodate 16 teams, each bracket having 8 teams.  The tournament will be double elimination, with the competitive bracket competing first followed by the recreational bracket. Each team is guaranteed at least 2 games and also a chance at some awesome prizes!
