The project’s goal is to raise $300,000 dollars for cutting edge breast cancer research and distribute 30,000 creative hand made cards to cancer patients in hospitals and cancer centers nationwide. Yes, the 2nd day is still Dig Pink day so wear something pink!

Teams are already creating cards & raising funds, and to reach our goals we need your club too! The deadline to submit cards and funds is March 31 in order to receive FREE Assist Club shirts for your team.

Coolers, Food And Chairs

NO COOLERS of any kind, of any size, or for any reason are permitted in the Washington Convention Center. Coolers left inside the building will be removed to the outside of the building. Coolers left outside the building are the sole responsibility of the owner, but may be confiscated if security deems them a hazard. Neither Capitol Hill Classic, Metro American VBC nor the facility will assume any responsibility for coolers or providing a place for them.

No outside food can be brought into the Convention Center building, not even into the lobby. This is a Convention Center rule that we must enforce as a condition of our contract; it is not our rule. We understand people don't like this and neither do we. But we are bound by the terms of the contract and cannot negotiate this away. We apologize for any inconvenience it causes.

In this post-9/11 world, major facilities reserve the right to restrict any items being brought into the building that they consider to be a problem; this includes personal seating and other large containers. We do provide seating for spectators at each court. Teams will be penalized if supporters hassle the security staff about these rules. Please abide by the rules and let the tournament be enjoyable for everyone.



Some Playing Info!

"PLAY TIMES Competition begins at 9:00am on Saturday, February 14, 2015.

Start time on Sunday will be 9:00 am and on Monday matches will begin at 8:00 am.

The event runs in waves. We will post exact starting times for age groups later. All teams should be prepared to play at 9:00am on Day 1. Final matches on most courts are scheduled for 3:00pm on Monday, February 16.

BE AWARE, however, that many courts run late on the 3rd Day. Playing times for 2nd and 3rd days will depend on how the team finishes the day before.

DO NOT assume you play in the same wave on the second day as you did on first..
