Recognized Roundnet Organizations

 

Every year there are hundreds of roundnet tournaments around the world. We've got some amazing organizers within our community that have been innovating and accelerating the growth of the sport. We want to give these dedicated organizers the tools to do even more by creating a program to officially recognize and support their roundnet organizations.
