MySportSeat has partnered with LAX Events for the 2022 Rip The Wave tournament in South Bend, IN on July 16-17 at the Junior Irish Fields.  Our company offers daily and weekend outdoor chair rentals for destination youth sports tournaments.  Our goal is to service attendees that either forgot to bring a portable chair to the event/tournament, or they are traveling long distances, and bringing a chair is not worth the time/struggle (due to air travel or an already full vehicle).  The chairs we have are brand new.  They are light, easy to put up and take down, and each chair has an adjustable roof and beverage holder (plus room for storage underneath).  Our tents/kiosks are located at the major entry/exit points of the tournament so it makes it very easy for guests to pick up and return chairs.  You never have lug chairs to and from your vehicle!!!  Everything is on site at the tournament!


To reserve your chair(s) for Rip The Wave, please go to our website at  Once on the site, click the RESERVE YOUR SEAT link underneath the ChicagoLand Events icon.  On the ordering page, go to the TOURNAMENT drop down and click Rip The Wave.  Please follow the instructions below.  If you have any questions after your order or leading up to Rip The Wave, please call Todd Adams at (816) 668-0514 or you can email him at  Rentals for Rip The Wave are $8 per day or our savings rate of $12 for the entire weekend.  Individual advance rentals include a ticket for a cold bottle of water each day.  We are also offering a group weekend rate to cater to the players and coaches (15 chairs for $165-entire weekend, bottled water tickets not included).  We sincerely appreciate your business, and we hope our service makes your tournament experience even more pleasurable.
