USA Volleyball will bring the 2022 USA Volleyball Open National Championship to Orlando, the first time the city has hosted the event since 2016.
The tournament will be staged May 27–June 1 at the Orange County Convention Center and will also include USA Volleyball’s annual meeting. The 2016 event drew a record 578 teams.
“USA Volleyball is thrilled to be bringing the USA Volleyball Open National Championship back to Orlando in 2022,” said Jamie Davis, USA Volleyball president and CEO. “Visit Orlando, the Greater Orlando Sports Commission, and the Orange County Convention Center always prove to be wonderful hosts for our athletes, officials, coaches and fans. I am sure that in addition to experiencing the best volleyball has to offer in the United States that our group will thoroughly enjoy their stay in the destination.”
USA Volleyball will also celebrate annual inductees and award honorees at the USA Volleyball Hall of Fame presented at the Dorothy C. Boyce Banquet on May 25.
“We look forward to welcoming the 2022 USA Volleyball Open National Championship and corporate annual meetings to Orlando in May of next year,” said Casandra Matej, president and CEO of Visit Orlando. “Orlando has been successfully and safely hosting in-person group events since reopening over a year ago. From professional sports to youth tournaments, sports tourism has been an important force in our destination’s recovery, and we are thrilled that USA Volleyball has selected Orlando for their event next year.”
“We are so pleased to welcome our good friends at USA Volleyball back to Orlando for the 2022 Open National Championship, banquet and corporate meetings in May of 2022,” said Jason Siegel, president and CEO of the Greater Orlando Sports Commission. “Our community has a long history of hosting premier volleyball events, and we know that our guests and their families will have a tremendous experience while visiting us in Central Florida.”
