INDIANAPOLIS – The Men’s Volleyball Club at Butler University will be hosting a Halloween Showcase on Oct. 20 with games running from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. at the HRC. Admission is free.

This Halloween showcase will be an eight-team tournament with two pools of four teams. Each team will play all the other teams in their respective pool and then play the other brackets resulting from the previous games.

Some of the competing teams in the tournament will include Ball State, Indiana State, Southern Illinois, Ferris State, and Butler’s own teams divided into teams A and B. The club is hoping to make the Halloween Showcase an annual event.

The Butler team is eager to play in their first tournament of the season. Club President Sam Burton says, “I’m excited for an opportunity to play at home in front of some friends and family against teams we don’t get to play too often. It will be a great warm-up and team bonding opportunity for our guys.” They are expecting to go to nationals again this year and win.

If anyone is interested in joining the club next season contact Sam Burton. Below is a tentative schedule for the season.
