SVC hosts about a dozen tournaments each year.  One of the things we’ve learned from this experience is that SVC is space constrained relative to the spectator population, and the space is made tighter by the presence of over-the-top, out-of-control, billboard-sized food tables.  Food tables are deeply ingrained in the volleyball culture in the South, though, and we are loathe to disallow them.  However, we must control them to protect the experience of athletes and spectators alike.

Therefore, SVC’s Food Table Policy is as follows:

  • Food tables will be allowed, provided that SVC will furnish the tables.  Spectator-provided tables will not be allowed inside the facility.
  • No heating or cooking devices–crock pots, etc.–of any kind are allowed in the facility.
  • SVC will set up eight, 72″ x 30″ tables.  We will mark the middle of each table with tape, resulting in half-tables of 15 square feet.  Each of the 16 teams in a given wave will have access to a half-table.  We ask that coolers and the like be put underneath a team’s respective table.
  • If the area provided is unsufficient for a team’s needs, tailgating outside is permitted, and there is plenty of space for this in the grassy area to the front of the building.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation in this regard.
