CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – On Friday, April 2 and Saturday, April 3, the Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi Islander’s Women’s NCAA Division I Beach Volleyball Team will host the 2021 Conni & Jay Wise Island Classic at downtown’s The Water’s Edge.

The Beach Volleyball event will feature five universities including our Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi Islanders, University of Utah, Houston Baptist University, Texas A&M University-Kingsville and Stephen F. Austin. These teams will all play each other in a single game match over the course of two days. Matches start at 8:00 a.m. daily and end with the final game at 4:30 p.m.

"Corpus Christi is the perfect place to host a collegiate volleyball tournament with our beautiful beaches and warm hospitality," said Mayor Paulette M. Guajardo.

This will be just the third home tournament in school history since the program began in 2016. The Islanders did not have a home tournament last year due to COVID-19.

There will be a DJ and a variety of food trucks. The two-day event is free and open to the public.
