Wednesday After Work Beach Volleyball 5 PM - 10 PM

Charles brings 4 balls and 3 court boundary lines.

Total beginners to advanced players are welcome to join us for a fun competitive workout. Your welcome to bring friends - just mark them down as guests.



We need to replace my volleyballs and need 2-3 more court boundaries.  The organizer for Adventure People have given this space beach volleyball meetups don't welcome. To post meetups on other meetup groups requires 3 people post a meeting suggestion and agree to meet for events to be sent to all members. The other alternative is to collect dues to pay $150 a year or $75 twice a year.



On the Santa Monica #10 Freeway heading west, take the 4th & 5th offramp.
Stay left for the 4th street offramp. (Right is 5th Ave offramp.)
I take the center lane to turn Left on 4th.
Right on Pico and keep going & turn left at Ocean Ave (at an angle). Some park on the street near Hollister Ave. for $1.00 each hour. But don't pay for parking after 6 PM when parking is free.

There may be free parking on the other side of Main Street, 2 blocks East of Ocean Ave., in the a residential area. But if you park there make sure parking is permitted before restrictions set in. A ticket may cost $50 or more if not careful.

Residential parking between Ocean Ave & Main Street is restricted to residents only.



Many park in the 2 hour lot for 2 hours and some return to pay for more parking. Parking in 2 hour lot is $1.00 per hour. After 6 PM parking on the street at meters is free.



I believe all day parking is $8.00 weekdays Summer Rate.
All day parking may save getting a $50.00 ticket. If you park at Santa Monica beach parking lots often they sell monthly permits. I believe the woman said they sell for $27.00 for a month but that sounds low.

I hang my blue pack on one court and volleyball bag at the side of another court net.       Cell is[masked] if you have trouble finding us.

Suggest wearing t-shirt & shorts or swim clothes to not overheat playing even in cold winter months. But bring sweat top/bottom or medium weight coat to stay warm if wind blows to not be cold. Wind sometimes speeds up after 11 AM to 1 PM can be cold.

I recommend bringing a bag/pack with more clothing layers if it cools down or gets cold. My pack includes: something to drink, suntan lotion, sunglasses, hat, ball pump, etc. The bag is always ready to go to not hunt around home for things sometimes needed to be able to grab and go without thinking or remembering anything extra. I have Bags for badminton, tennis and sailing are ready to go also.

Most days Malibu to Palos Verdes are visible. Is your gym free with such a spectacular view?

It only takes about 10 minutes to warm up on most Winter cold mornings-so a beach workout year round is possible.


Some people enjoy playing tournament doubles games but few offer man & women teams. Do any players want co-ed doubles and man/man & woman/woman teams to add to fun?


If I cannot host a meetup it will be nice to have one or two hosts that can bring boundaries and balls. Any volunteers? This should be a rare event.

    Just joined the group and one of my summer goals is to learn how to play volleyball! As long as you'll put up with a complete beginner, I'll be there every Wednesday!
