OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. (February 22, 2022) – We Build You Play Sports Group and the Chicago Southland Convention & Visitors Bureau (CSCVB) have announced the 2022 Prairie Dustup volleyball tournament is coming to the Southland Center in Lynwood on April 23-24.

The super-regional event is sanctioned by the Amateur Athletic Union, where youth volleyball players and teams from around the country will descend upon the Chicago Southland to compete in the 12th annual Prairie Dustup. This is the first tournament the We Build You Play Sports Group will host in the Midwest.

Advance-purchase tickets must be acquired for spectators of the tournament. COVID-19 guidelines will be in effect.

“The Chicago Southland has so much to offer plus we love the fact we can play 14 matches at one-time at the Southland Center,” said We Build You Play Sports Group Marketing Director Molly Comly.

“The Chicago Southland’s accessibility to six interstates and only being a five-hour drive from eight different states makes this partnership a perfect match,” said CSCVB CEO/President Jim Garrett. “I’m excited to see the competition, this event could feature future Olympians!” he added.

March 26 is the deadline to enter boys and girls teams 13u-18u and there are divisions for both men and women as well. For more information visit
