One of downtown Raleigh's largest youth sporting events took center stage this past weekend as 156 girls volleyball teams visiting from N.Y. to G.A. invaded the Raleigh Convention Center for a two-day tournament, Mar. 7-8.
Triangle Volleyball Club hosted the Mid-Atlantic Power League (MAPL) event, for which GRSA is a host partner. Twenty-four indoor volleyball courts were laid out on the Raleigh Convention Center's exhibit hall floor, setting the stage for non-stop action for athletes, coaches and spectators.
The event brought in 4,000 total visitors for the weekend and more than 1,500 hotel rooms were booked.
