The Waverly Holiday Tournament is the longest running small school holiday basketball tournament in the state of Illinois. It now brings sixteen communities to our town for four days and twenty-six games of basketball. The halls and gym are filled with parents, fans and former players following the games and also reliving memories created in our historic gym. We have a history room located just off the gym that has many artifacts from the seventy-three years of the tournament. Championship night is a unique experience where you can't find a seat in the bleachers and have people standing two deep on the sideline and corners of the court. The roar of the crowd from when the teams take the court to the final buzzer of the championship game is an experience that you will never forget.
Welcome to the 73rd Waverly Holiday Tournament. We want to thank everyone for their support of the tournament over the years. The tournament would not be as good as it is, if we did not have the support of the volunteers, teams, schools and communities involved in the tournament every year.
Good luck to all participating schools!
Yours in hoops,
Athletic Director of Waverly High School
