We are pleased to announce the results of the 34th Annual Mud Volleyball Tournament! What an exciting day– It was great to get back in the mud after a year off due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are grateful for sunny skies and 101 teams playing at this year’s tournament! The event raised $40,000 which will be used to help people with epilepsy and their families throughout Connecticut.
After a long day of muddy games, it came down to new teams in the final match, Pass Up Ace Down
