At the Upward Stars Volleyball Center, we do not have necessary accommodations to sell concession food, but we will have outside food vendors at most of our events. Guests are not allowed to bring in their own food tables. However, they are allowed to set up outside and "tailgate" similar to the way they do at the Star Center. The volleyball center staff will remove trash on an as needed basis.  It is expected that our volleyball guests take care of and police up trash in their area. If you have any questions, please call the Upward Star Center at 864-949-5900.

We now have a HOUSING PROGRAM made with YOU in mind. Prior to your arrival, visit and book with one of our partnered hotels for the biggest savings, free breakfast, close proximity, and family friendly rooms.
