Ranse Volleyball Classic Pro Am
November 3 - November 4
Ranse Volleyball Classic Pro Am 2-man volleyball tournament hits Deerfield Beach, FL again this year on November 3-4, 2018, and we are planning for our biggest and best year yet.
The Ranse Classic is a beach volleyball Pro-Am tournament in memory of Ranse Jones, an avid beach volleyball player. Ranse grew up in NC before relocating to Florida to pursue his dream of playing professional beach volleyball. He later pursued his other passion as a firefighter for the Flagler County Fire Department in North Florida.
In 2010, at the age of 34, while playing in an AVP Young Guns Professional Volleyball tournament in Florida, Ranse suffered a stroke and passed away 6 months later, one day after the inaugural Ranse Classic was held to raise funds for his medical expenses. Since Ranse’s passing, we have been offering this tournament to find stroke awareness through the Ranse Jones Stroke Awareness Fund at Broward Health North. In 8 years we have raised in excess of $240,000 and momentum is growing as we plan for the best year yet. Live Simple. Play Hard.
Friday night: Player party at Burger Craze with court drawings beginning at 7pm for JUNIORS and 7:45pm for Mens & Women’s! This will be broadcasted LIVE on Facebook if you are unable to attend.
The Ranse Classic is a blind draw grab bag event, with King of the Beach style of “pool play”. You will sign up as an individual, and then players are “picked” during the Friday night player’s party to determine what court they will be playing on to determine their division level (Open/AAA – OR – AA/A).
- 4 players per court
- King of the Beach style of play to 21
- The top 2 players from each court will be seeded into an Open/AAA bracket
