The National Marbles Tournament was first held in 1922. The national committee operates the tournament which is composed of a group of volunteer men & women from various walks of life, from around the country that have a common interest in the game of marbles. National Marbles Tournament Inc. is a Non-Profit organization under US tax code 501(c)(3).
These games help teach boys and girls 7 thru 14 how to compete in the skilled game of “Ringer”. Our competitors are also taught good sportsmanship. Our winners will meet with other city, county or state tournament winners from around the United States who will all converge in Wildwood for a week of serious marble competition and fun on amusement rides and boardwalk attractions. Top winners at the National Tournament will receive scholarships for games won and also awards for good sportsmanship.
