It can be tough to find a good tournament to play in sometimes, especially if you’re new to an area, or traveling away from your home community. With their extensive tournament calendar, VBLNation.com wants to solve this dilemma. Visitors to the site can search the calendar by viewing tournaments by state, highlighting juniors’ events or national tournaments, or just viewing all events in a month. The calendar includes indoor and beach events, and anyone can add their tournament to the list.
Vanessa Latimer founded the website because she loved volleyball, and because she traveled frequently for work, she always had to look up places to play while she was out of town. She met tons of great people this way and played in tournaments all over, but she was surprised that there wasn’t anywhere for these people to share their schedules and news with other volleyball players around the country. Juniors’ volleyball and professional leagues seemed to be getting a lot of press, but what about everyone in between? Thus, VBLNation was born.
