NGU Travelers Guide 

-We will be playing on side court’s, end lines will be shallow so long approach jump serving will be difficult.

-Locker rooms will be assigned and will be shared.  Our staff will be on hand to lock rooms but please arrange a bag for all valuables to be collected and accounted for as NGU cannot be responsible for any lost items.

-Each team will be assigned a section to sit in on one side of the gym.  This side will not be open for general admission spectators to sit or visit.  All fans will be directed to one side of the gym for seating.

-As stated before on Saturday some teams will be required to play back to back to back.

-We are arranging for our food service department to service our concessions stand.  There will also be information from local eating establishments given to you on Friday if you would like to arrange food at your expense to be brought to Hayes Gym at a specific time during the tournament.

-Please inform your fans that there is a $5.00 per day entry fee.
