Some 220 LGBTQ volleyball players from 28 teams nationwide took part in the Hotlanta Classic XXVI on Friday to Sunday.
The weekend kicked off with a registration party Friday night at BJ Roosters, games on Saturday, a seeding party Saturday night at Ten, games on Sunday and a tournament afterparty Sunday night at Woofs. Hopefully that margarita bust that Hotlanta Volleyball Association threw on July 27 got the players ready for the big weekend.
The game action went down at Tsunami Volleyball in Forest Park.
