Windy City Challenge: The Final Chicagoland Series Event Recap



Volleyball teams from several states traveled to Chicago to experience the Windy City Challenge in Bedford Park. The 2-day event was held at the Wintrust Sports Complex with 87 teams and over 2,000 spectators.

“We were thrilled to be able to host a multiple tournament series in Chicago this year,” said Troy Helton, Hype Nation Partner. “Hosting three successful tournaments shows the love the Chicago area has for Volleyball. We were thrilled with the results and look forward to another great series next year!”

Hype Nation would like to extend a special thank you and shout out to two of our event sponsors. Mikasa for providing the tournament balls for all games and 431 Sports who provided all of the champion medals. Without the support of our sponsors, we wouldn’t be given the opportunity to work with other exceptional industry partners! Below is a list of the division champions from the Windy City Challenge.
