In a remarkable collaboration between USA Volleyball and Summit Nitro Volleyball, the city of Tulsa is set to host the Tulsa 2-on-2 Narrow Court Sitting Volleyball Cash Tournament. This one-of-a-kind event aims to raise awareness about the fast-paced game of sitting volleyball and encourage participation from both able-bodied and disabled athletes.

Following the resounding success of the U.S. Women’s Sitting Volleyball Team at the 2016 Paralympic Games, this unique cash tournament offers players a chance to compete for impressive prizes. The winning team will receive a generous cash prize of $2,000, with $1,000 awarded to the second-place team. Third and fourth place finishers will earn $500 and $250 respectively, while the fifth and sixth place teams will receive $150 each.

Unlike previous years, where the U.S. National Sitting Volleyball Teams held scrimmages during the Tulsa Volleyball Classic, this tournament offers an interactive experience for athletes and spectators alike. U.S. Women’s Sitting Volleyball Team Head Coach, Bill Hamiter, believes that involving athletes other than his own players will help showcase the sport in an engaging way.

According to Hamiter, “USA Volleyball felt this unique tournament will help promote sitting volleyball and grow the sport in new ways to both disabled and able-bodied athletes alike. While it was great to expose fans to watching our national sitting teams in past years, this tournament allows followers to experience the game firsthand while also having the chance to win some cash prizes. It is a win-win for our sport, and it couldn’t be done without the help of Summit Nitro Volleyball.”
