Event Description

After 30 years, The Rumble has become one of the largest and certainly the toughest volleyball event in the country.  Pottstown Pennsylvania is the battle ground for volleyball players testing their skills, their mettle and their toughness.  In addition to hosting thousands of amateur players in every division, The Rumble always draws a few ranked AVP professionals trying to take the crown and the first place prize money.  Some have succeeded, like Phil Dalhausser and Nick Lucena in 2004, but most leave with just bruises and grass stains.  

The Rumble is well named!  Long after the volleyball community switched to rally scoring and short court, The Rumble defiantly kept to the old school rules.  With side-out scoring and the extra long pool play format, teams must earn every win.   The arduous format guarantees that only the toughest prevail.  Grass courts make for a game that is fast and powerful.  Players must be able to pass huge jump serves and dig big hits.  Defense is tough because of the larger court size, and of course diving on grass is very hard on the body.  Finishing well at The Rumble gains a player great respect, so everyone is out for blood.  The competition, prize money, and grueling format make for the perfect storm of memorable battles. 

Pottstown is a blue-collar town in Southeastern Pennsylvania and the perfect setting for an event that celebrates a hard day’s work and getting dirty for a paycheck.  Early on the event was billed as “A volleyball tournament run by the players, for the players.”  This moniker is still true and might answer as to why so many players love The Rumble and respect the organizers.
