The TransPacific Volleyball Championships started as an AAU Super Regional tournament in 2018 during MLK Weekend, as we were looking for a venue that was big enough to host a qualifying tournament for 80 teams that wanted to participate in our Champions League Hawaii (https://championsleaguehi.com). The first year we used only 1 exhibition hall of the Hawaii Convention Center.
In 2019 the number of teams almost doubled (159 teams) from the year before, and we had to set up all three exhibition hall of the Hawaii Convention Center. The tournament also picked the interest of mainland teams and neighbor island teams.
In 2020 we are expecting to host 200+ teams from Oahu, neighbor islands, mainland USA, Canada, China & Philippines.
