The 20th anniversary of the Adidas-John Turner Volleyball Classic will be August 10-12, 2017.
The tournament has had several names and sponsors over 20 years, but was recently named, and rightly so, after former Pearland head volleyball coach John Turner, who had a vision for such a great event and saw it become the biggest high school volleyball tournament in the nation. Turner retired from coaching in 2016, but remains at Pearland High School as an instructor.
There will be 78 teams from all over Texas and some from outside of Texas competing in this year’s tournament. Some have referred to the tournament as the pre-season Texas state volleyball tournament.
Roughly 45 teams in the tournament field made the playoffs in 2016 including 6A champion Hebron and 5A champion Amarillo. The tournament will take place at several PISD locations across town as well as the Pearland Recreation Center. More information on the tournament can be found at www.txvbinv.com
