2016 Date Announced!

The fifth annual Conway Cup will be held April 9, 2016, at Washington and Lee University.

The tournament will be moved to April to take advantage of better weather than what is usually present in February. We understand the date change means that some age groups might not be able to attend, but we will accommodate everyone as much as possible (e.g. high school players are welcome to compete in the adult open division)We also hope to expand into the U12 and U10 age groups. As always, brackets will be determined by the number of teams that register. 
The Conway Cup was established in 2012 in honor of Tony Conway who was diagnosed with ALS in fall 2011. As you might already know, Tony ended his battle with ALS in February, just one day before the original date for the 2015 Cup. We hope to continue the tournament in his memory, and the funds raised will continue to go to ALS families and ALS research. 
We will begin bracket organization in the next few months, so please check in with this site and our Facebook page for updates. 
Thank you very much, and we hope to see you in the spring!
