We are super excited to have another tournament to be featured on ESPN. With this production, some things may run differently than a normal tournament.
  • Jerseys – for a professional look, we need all teams to wear matching jerseys. There are strict jersey guidelines and if you are on the featured court you may need to wear an ESPN approved jersey provided by Spikeball.
  • Breaks in gameplay – on the featured court, we may ask you to wait to start some points to make sure cameras and commentators are good to go.  
I’m sure there will be other things that come up that we haven't thought of. Thanks for being flexible and helping us make these events amazing!
