Good coed, pickup volleyball Monday evenings in upper Georgetown / Glover Park. Advance reservations are not required; just show up. Teams are formed on the spot. Optional beer and pizza (or other items on the menu) after volleyball at Froggy Bottom Pub, 2021 K Street, NW.
We meet almost every Monday evening throughout the indoor season with the exception of Memorial Day and Labor Day. We are no longer playing outdoors during the summer months.
We have three nets at Jelleff Community Center, 3265 “S” Street, NW, just a half a block off Wisconsin Avenue. We play Mondays, starting from 6:45 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. $5 for Ski Club members, $8 for non-members. No bills over $20 accepted. There is an ATM on Wisconsin Ave. half a block away.
Parking: Free parking in the lot at Jelleff. Right when we start, a lot of soccer parents are picking up their young players, so the parking lot tends to be full until 7:15 p.m. If you arrive earlier than that, just park on “S” Street away from the parking meters – it’s a two-hour zone. This is a very safe neighborhood.
With Ski Club volleyball, you will typically play more games per evening than in most leagues. We have two levels of play: intermediate and advanced. This is not “picnic volleyball.” We play by the rules. Play on our advanced court is often fierce. They tend to play 5/1 volleyball with a three-person attack on the front line.(See playing advice below.)
Leaders: John Henrehan, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Ira Silvergleit, email@example.com. Questions? Hit us before Monday evening, because we’ll be playing volleyball!
Ability Level / Having Fun?Skill levels vary on the intermediate court, so, for safety reasons, we try to stress three house rules: 1) Do not chase the ball onto another court. i.e. stop running at the boundary line; 2) When possible, try to take all three hits before returning the ball over the net; 3) The setter gets the second touch. No matter where the ball is on the court, the setter gets the second touch UNLESS the setter calls “help.”
Can you bump? Can you set? If your answers are “yes”, try our intermediate court. Rusty players are welcome. We''ll give you a few tips to get you going.
