Saturday afternoon brings Women’s Pro Finals to center court while the Men’s Pro division wraps up Sunday afternoon competing for the $5,000 first place price. There will be food and clothing vendors, an on-site massage therapist, and high-energy music throughout the weekend. All visitors welcome!!

POTTSTOWN, PA — With the second day of the 21st annual Pottstown Rumble came the champions.
The men’s open championship, the marquee event of the sprawling volleyball tournament at Pottstown Memorial Park, was taken by two men from as far away from Pottstown as you can get.
Andrey Belov’s missile-like serves brought he and his partner, Dana Camacho, the top prize of $4,000 in what many consider the premier grass volleyball event on the east coast.
Belov, a tall Russian from St. Petersburg with arms as long as canoe oars, said the Rumble was his first grass tournament in the U.S. His partner, Camacho, a tattooed, laid-back Californian from Venice Beach, recruited Belov to the tournament with the goal of smoking the competition.
The Mercury did a good thing today by making sure the world knows those stupid rumors about the Pottstown Rumble leaving our fair city are untrue! They are not going any where according to organizer Ken Kaas.
This is an awesome event for Pottstown. If you have never attended, take a walk through Memorial Park this weekend and check it out. Amazing athletes competing for $22,000.00 in prizes. You can watch any of the matches by just standing on the sidelines and staying out-of-the-way.
Over 2,000 people have signed up! These kind of events are exactly what Pottstown needs. The people who come here really enjoy it, say good things about Pottstown (unlike some residents) and it brings money into town! A win-win if ever I saw one!
Kudos to the Mercury for their positive promotion of The Rumble!
