Muddy volleyball tournament raises big money

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - There is nothing like sinking your bare feet into squishy, warm mud. And there's also nothing like doing it for a good cause.

Habitat For Humanity hosted its 4th annual Mud Volleyball Tournament Sunday with 73 teams competing.

Each match was played in a calf-deep pool of mud. Organizers estimate the tournament raised $15,000 for Habitat for Humanity. That money will go towards funding a new Habitat home for 2010.
