(Click Tabs to Navigate)
We are happy to announce that we have rescheduled our Battleground Explosion to May 23-25, 2020. Yes, that makes the tournament a 3 day. There are a couple of reasons we are planning 3 days for the event. 1. We may not be able to have the same number of courts available as in previous years, so we may need to stretch things out a bit. 2. We may still use the same 2-day format and have 1 wave of age groups play Saturday/Sunday and then have the other wave of age groups come in and play Sunday/Monday.
There will NOT be a coaches meeting on Friday night. However, COACHES OR CLUB DIRECTORS MUST check in their teams (consists of signing the roster, picking up coaching credential pass(es), and playing schedule/tournament procedures) at the Chattanooga Convention Center Friday 6-9PM.
The complete schedule for the entire weekend and seeding will be posted to the by 8pm on Wednesday the week of the event, will be updated if any teams add or drop, so check the web site regularly that week.
