All you need to know about OVR Championships!

OVR Regional Championships conclude our season for all teams! Your team's date is listed on your team page and the link will take you directly to the OVR page with all the information (start time, date, location, etc) for the OVR Championships.

Once pools are posted (usually by Thursday), this link will list your court assignment and team number, so you will know what court you are on and what your pool play schedule will be. 

All Championships are held at the Greater Columbus Convention Center. All Championships start at 8:30AM, players will need to be at their court at 8AM. There are 60-70 courts in the convention center hall, so it will take more time to park, enter and find your court on the morning of the Championship tourney. Please allow 15 minutes AFTER you park to enter the convention center and walk to your court. 

You will need a chair. There is no seating available. You may want a blanket to start the day. The convention center can be chilly at times! 

This tournament is the same format as all regular season tournaments- pool play followed by bracket play. Teams are pooled based on their rank within their age division within the region.  They are then divided into divisions (Gold/Silver/Bronze/Copper, etc). You can find the teams entered and which division your team is in by following this link.

*Please note this is a different link than the link that is on your team page, the link your team page will list the pools and court assignment*

Outside food and cooler are prohibited in the convention center, since it is an OVR event.  UPDATE:  There is a number of food stands directly outside the halls where the tournament is being played. There is also a food court in the convention center that is a 10-minute walk from where the tournament is being played. 

As stated at the parents meeting in December, the club does not set up hotel blocks for teams and/or families. It is left to the discretion of each family as to what hotel they choose to stay at and if they choose to stay at a hotel for any tournament.   

If you have any questions in regards to the OVR Championships, please let us know.
