IU Columbus plans to add men’s and women’s basketball and competitive cheer and dance teams next year.

The tournament will be one of several events on homecoming Saturday for the school, including women’s volleyball, women’s soccer and men’s soccer games that day. There will also be a canned food drive, bowling club outing, pancake breakfast, tailgating, awards night, and the launch of the Talking Leaves student literary magazine.

Registration for the tournament is $100 per person and includes 18 holes of golf with a cart and a boxed lunch.

Organizers are also looking for sponsors for individual holes and corporation sponsors for the event.
