State Volleyball Tournament to be held in Enterprise this weekend

For the first time, Enterprise is hosting the Alabama Recreation and Parks Association Volleyball State Tournament.

The Tournament, hosted by Enterprise Parks and Recreation, will be held Saturday, Nov. 12, and will feature 250 players from all parts of Alabama.

“This is something we have looked forward to doing since we started the volleyball program back in 2018,” Enterprise Parks and Recreation Superintendent Blake Moore said. “We are excited to bring the tournament to our city and hope this is just the beginning of a long tradition of hosting.”

Moore said interest in Volleyball has grown considerably since 2018, thanks in part to the Enterprise High School Volleyball program. Clinics quickly turned into leagues: one for 3rd and 4th graders and one for 5th and 6th graders.

“Our first year going to league play went great and we wound up making our first trip to the state tournament. That was a great experience. We learned a lot and were able to implement new things for the next season,” Moore said.

By 2020, Moore said EPRD’s volleyball program took off.   He said he took calls all spring asking about sign ups, and when registration rolled around, 80 girls participated.  The 3rd- 4th grade team and the 5th-6th grade team both won the state tournament.  In 2021, the program expanded to 100 participants and the teams both placed second in the state tournament.  This year, Moore said 110 girls participated in league play.  EPRD will have three teams in the tournament this weekend.

All five courts at Enterprise High School will be used for the tournament.  Moore says the tournament would not be possible without the help of EHS Athletic Director Trent Trawick, and the support of Coach Graham and Coach Moore from EHS Volleyball.

The Volleyball matches start at 9 a.m. Saturday. Tickets are $5. Ages 5 and younger are free.
