Four teams from the Hotlanta Volleyball Association were among the 133 competing for a national championship in Chicago last weekend.
The Atlanta teams — Hot Tranny Mess (BB), Shark (BB), Team Lynette (A) and Mojo (BB) (top and bottom photos) — were fighting across two of the four divisions at the 27th annual North American Gay Volleyball Association National Championships, held May 21-24.
The teams didn’t take their divisions, but did enjoy competitive play throughout the weekend. The tournament drew a record number of teams and about 1,100 players, well above its previous high of about 90 teams. The tournament moves to Portland, Ore., in 2010.
“It was an incredible tournament, the largest event we’ve ever had,” NAGVA President Rick Talley tells Outsports. “The play has been very, very good in all four divisions. There were a lot of very closes matches.”
