Volleyball tournament set for PrideFest


The Open Grass PrideFest Volleyball Tournament is set to take place June 9-10 at the Milwaukee Summerfest grounds.

The tournament will include competition inside and on the outside lawns of the PrideFest festival grounds at Henry Maier Festival Park, 200 N. Harbor Drive, Milwaukee.

The tournament, open to the public in recreational and competitive divisions, is coordinated by the Milwaukee Gay Volleyball Association and Milwaukee GAMMA.

The registration fee is $210 per team of six players. Up to two additional players can be added to a team for $35 per player.

The registration – due by May 30 – includes tournament fees, a Friday-Sunday pass to PrideFest Milwaukee, a welcome bag of goodies, tournament T-shirt, admission to a kickoff event and trophies for winning teams.

Organizers are planning to host 200 players on six grass courts, with teams arriving from throughout Wisconsin and Illinois.

Last year 16 teams participated in the tournament.
