Fellow Monday Evening volleyball players:
8/27/20 UPDATE: Monday evening volleyball, a Ski Club tradition since the 1950s, will resume when it is safe to do so.
Currently, all DC DPR gyms are not available for rental.

Monday Night Volleyball - Indefinitely suspended.
GOOD, COED, PICK-UP VOLLEYBALL -- Players are invited to our Monday evening, drop-in, coed volleyball. (We do NOT play on Monday federal holidays.)
Play on our A-level court is quite competitive. They play 5/1or 6/2 volleyball with a floating setter and a three-person attack at the net. Don't know what that means? Consider our intermediate court.
On the intermediate court, we play by the rules, and we all rotate through the setter's position. We try to take all three hits before returning the ball. Here are the key questions: Can you serve? Bump? Set? If your answers are "yes”, come and play with us. Rusty players are always welcome!
We have three courts, so waiting time between games is quite short. On many nights, play is continuous. JUST SHOW UP. You'll be in a game, typically, in less than ten minutes.
Attendance varies between 15 and 35 members and guests.
Monday evenings, 7:00 p.m. -- 9:00 p.m. in upper Georgetown. Sponsored (for many decades) by Ski Club of Washington D.C.
Jelleff Community Center, 3265 "S" Street NW, just off Wisconsin Ave. Free parking in the lot, although right at 7:00 p.m. the lot tends to be filled with parents picking up their kids. Usually there are plenty of spaces by 7:15 p.m. Alternative parking: there are always spaces on "S" Street, just avoid the metered areas. Very safe neighborhood.
To enter the gym, look for the green awning with the name JELLEFF on it.
Cost: $5 for Ski Club members; $8 for non-members. Cash only. No bills over $20.
Optional beer and pizza afterward, currently at Froggy Bottom Pub, 2021 "K" Street, NW. That's in downtown D.C., near the corner of K St. and 21st St., NW.
