This year the Care AssuranceSystem for the Aging and Homebound (CASA) is hosting their 24th Annual Volleyball Tournament at Swan Creek Park beside Athens High School on July 21st beginning at 9:00 AM. It’s time for teams to register to compete. About 90 teams compete each year and raise about $8,000 for the agency. The deadline to enter is July 11th. If you register by July 2nd, you will receive a t-shirt. Registration is $15 per play. Each team must have a minimum of eight members and two of those must be females.
Spectators are admitted free. If you’ve never attended one of the tournaments, this year would be the perfect time to go and support your favorite team. Don’t get too close to the net; you will get muddy! However, mud washes off and you’ll enjoy every minute of the games. For more information about the tournament, contact 256-777-1038.
