This year, we will be using a hotel service to secure hotel room blocks for all Backcourt Bulldogs teams. To be eligible to play, you must use the room block that is designated. You will need to contact Apex-Events. During larger tournaments, you will have several hotel options to choose from. The goal is to make the hotel reservation process easier for the NEPA Elite families and to make your stay more enjoyable, while always keeping price, location and amenities in mind.
