About Sin City Classic

The Sin City Classic Sports Festival is a multi-day LGBTQ sports festival hosted annually by The Greater Los Angeles Softball Association (GLASA) in Las Vegas during the four days prior to the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. Started in 2008, the event has grown to become the largest annual LGBTQ sporting event in the world.

Each year nearly 7,000 LGBTQ athletes and another 2,000 fans and allies supporting 20-plus sports make Sin City Classic one of their must-attend events each year. The festival provides an open atmosphere for LGBTQ athletes to connect and compete through various sports over the course of four days of competition and social activities.

What to expect

This will be a fun event regardless of your skill level. All teams will get to play a bunch of games in pool play, everyone qualifies for the bracket, and there are consolation matches too. There will be drinks, snacks, and fun competitions to play throughout the day. The winners of each division will receive trophies and Spikeball products.

The Sin City Classic organizes a bunch of fun events throughout the entire weekend. Participation in the Spikeball tournament gives you a wristband which allows you to access opening and closing ceremonies, exclusive parties, and other social mixers throughout the weekend.

FAQs

How many people can I have on my team?
All the teams are composed of just two players to make it fair when endurance becomes a factor in the later rounds.
 
Are any combination of teammates allowed?
This is an LGBTQ focused event so the preference is that at least one member of each team represents that community. However, the tournament welcomes LGBTQ allies and does not have limitations on who can participate.
 
Can I play in multiple divisions?
Due to the format of the tournament, you may only play in one division per day.
 
I'm new to Spikeball is this event for me?
Absolutely! We have divisions for every type of Spikeball™ whether you're one of the elite teams in the nation or just starting out in the sport.
