Do You WaunaSpike?
The Waunakee Lions Club will be organizing the 24th Annual Wauna Spike, a co-ed six-person grass volleyball tournament (download official entry form). As many as 69 teams, involving over 400 players at any one time have participated in this annual summer classic. This year’s tournament will be held Saturday, July 27th, at the Ripp Park soccer fields. People of all ages are eligible to participate. Pool competition begins at 8:30 AM and will run until roughly 1 PM. Playoffs are expected to conclude around 6 PM.
Play will occur in three divisions. For those seeking competition, a Power Division will be created which will involve individuals with strong volleyball skills. An Intermediate Division will be established for people with a strong heart for volleyball but with less skill. A Recreation Division will be created for those seeking fun participation. Underhand serves will be required for the Recreation Division.
Teams will be required to field three men and three women for tournament play. Team entries cost $90 each, and can consist of as many as eight players with no additional fee. Each team will be guaranteed eight sets prior to the beginning of playoffs. Teams making the playoffs will then participate in a single elimination playoff format.
Modified WIAA rules will be used. All teams will be required to officiate. Cash prizes will be available to the top four teams of the Power & Intermediate Divisions (assuming each of the 20 team divisions are full). Recreation will have fun prizes specifically picked for them.
