Do you like volleyball? Do you want to have some fun in the mud? This event is perfect for you! The Cedar Springs Area Parks and Recreation department is working to put on the 3rd annual co-ed mud volleyball tournament. The tournament is held in Morley Park and will be on Saturday, August 13. The tournament is divided by age groups and has staggered start times depending on age range. The cost is $100 per team and teams can consist of 4 to 8 players, with 6 playing at any time. The teams are co-ed in nature and are bracketed based on the oldest player on the team.
The tournament brings players from around the state and is growing in size each year. Awards are given to the top two teams in each division, and all players receive a commemorative shirt for playing in the tournament. The deadline for registration is August 5. Forms are available online at www.csaparksandrec.com and at the Cedar Springs Public Schools District Office (where the parks and rec office is located). It is suggested that teams wear shoes during the event and even duct tape them on, it gets pretty muddy!
The Cedar Springs Area Parks and Recreation Department is comprised of Algoma, Courtland, Nelson, and Solon Townships, the City of Cedar Springs and the entire Cedar Springs School District. The six organizations work together to offer recreational and enrichment activities.
