As in years past, Luau registration is priced on a per player basis, meaning that if you have 3 players for a triple's team, you pay for 3 players, if you have 4 players for a triples team, you pay for 4 players, etc. The 4's & 6's divisions work the same way where you pay per player, NOT per team. Each registrant's fee includes tournament play, breakfast, lunch and beer (10a-5p). Beer will be available for purchase before 10am. Only paying participants/spectators may take part in the tournament and all of the festivities.
Not playing? No problem! Spectator passes are available for purchase and include food and beer throughout the day! Click here to purchase your spectator pass in advance.
We have added a Cornhole/Bags Tournament to the Saturday Luau festivities! Now everyone can be a part of the Luau event even if you are not a volleyball player! The tournament includes the bags tournament, all you can eat & drink with cash prizes for the top teams.
