Second Playing Location
Because of the size of the event and the need to distance courts, some divisions may also play at the Union Bank & Trust Sports Complex, 21015 Cumberland Rd, Elkhorn, NE 68022. This is Nebraska Elite’s training facility.
We do not currently know which divisions will be playing at that facility and on which days. That information will not be available until the final schedule is released the week of the tournament.
