Rolling Along at the Rolley Hole Marbles Tournament
Marble enthusiasts from all over will gather in September for the annual Rolley Hole Marbles Tournament at Standing Stone State Park in Hilham.
Tennessee has a history of impressive and skilled marble competitors. In 2012, Logan Mayberry of Clay County took the title at the National Marbles Tournament in New Jersey, and Overton County’s Makynlee Sims followed close behind as runner-up.
The Rolley Hole Tournament is hailed as one of the world’s most challenging competitions and draws some of the best players in the country. There’s also a festival with marble making demonstrations, music, food and more.
This year’s tournament takes place September 19, 2015. For more information, call (931) 823-6347 or visit tn.gov/environment/parks/StandingStone.
