The rules will be slightly different (like in all tournaments) than normal 5-set High School matches. Each match played will be 3 sets, first to two sets will win. The first two sets will be to 25 points and must win by 2, however with time constraints on each match, a cap of 29 points will be used (which means if a team reaches 29 points first, regardless if the team is not up by 2 points, that team will win the set) and the deciding set will be to 15, win by 2 with a cap at 17 points.
Price of admission is $5 for an all-day pass (only State Passes are accepted). All matches will be at Tupelo High School.
Oxford is placed in Pool C to open Pool Play, Tupelo has asked all fans in Pool C to bring chairs as there are no bleachers in that court. Oxford fans and parents are encouraged to bring chairs to Tupelo with them if you want a place to sit.
