Big Pink Volleyball Tournament

The Big Pink Volleyball Tournament is a charity tournament that raises money for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. This year the tournament will be played with regular volleyball rules, with a slight twist during the 3rd set! The 3rd set of each game will be played with a Big Pink Volleyball! At the end there is also the opportunity to show off your awesome skills with a Big Pink Volleyball Skills Competition!

While the format of the tournament changes year to year, our goals remain the same:

  1. Help support those affected by breast cancer
  2. Have fun!

The tournament will also feature a silent auction and a door prize with items donated from our generous sponsors! The theme this year is “EXTREME Pink”, where the pinkest team will win a prize!

Students, staff and community members are welcome to participate in the tournament. The tournament is Open, meaning teams can be composed of any combination of genders.
