Dont be mistaken by the ages of the girls on the 788 teams. The young ladies in the 12-and-under division will make you cry for your Teddy Ruxpin, and the setters of the 18-and-under teams are so intense their fingertips could be weapons. And this is no small-time deal. Championships in the Open, American, and National divisions are on the line. So grab your lip gloss, US Weekly, and defibrillator someone is going to choke on a spike with a glitter comet trail. Tuesdays games are at noon, 2, 4, and 6 p.m. The competition runs through July 5. Tickets cost $12 a day or $45 for a tournament pass.
June 26-July 5, 2009
