The New England ChallengeTM,  Beach Volleyball Tournament

SPIKE UNIVERSITY's favorite sand tournament of the summer is The New England ChallengeTM.  This tournament is meant for all skills and allows all beach volleyball players a chance to advance their speed, focus and quality of play.  SpikeU created the "Challenge" format primarily because it trains you to "fight for every point" because it speeds up your tempo of play which trains you to stay focused and believe that you need to win every point.

**New: Play both days and save $20 (pays for gas!).  Register 2 players from same family and save $5pp.
