Big Pink Volleyball Tournament

The Big Pink Volleyball Tournament is a charity tournament that raises money for the Canadian Cancer Society. Now in it’s 8th year we hope to raise even more for the Canadian Cancer Society! 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!

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 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.
