The Beach Ball Classic was founded in 1981 in order to bring more high school competition to the east coast. It all began as a four team in-state and four team out of state competition, but with all the support from the community, it quickly evolved into a 16-team national holiday event. The popularity came quick and almost unexpectedly. In 1998, the Classic committee decided to add a women's tournament which added to its already high competition. The "Classic" as it is known in South Carolina, is held right after Christmas every year, lasting roughly four or five days until the new year hits. The Crescent Bank Holiday Invitational is held before Christmas and features the newly added women's tournament. The Invitational also feature the Carolina Challenge, which is an eight team tournament of the local women's colleges.
