What: Family-friendly pickup Volleyball games. Informal, fun. Learn how to play, improve, or keep your chops up. Meet locals and enjoy the evening in the shade. We play multiple games each week, with players rotating freely to form new teams each game. We don't "pick teams" so you don't have to worry about being last-picked.

Who: All levels and ages welcome. If you become impatient with beginners, perhaps this isn't for you. However, you don't have to be a beginner--if you can encourage strangers to improve and play alongside all levels, then this is for you! When: Every Thursday in July and August, 7-9pm Generally, this is rain-or-shine, but if it's an awful rainy day all day long, we'll probably cancel. We'll do our best to inform folks if that's the case, but last summer we even played during light showers!

Where: There are two Volleyball courts behind the Ft. Washington 190th St. A-line subway station. To get there:

--From Ft. Washington Ave., go down the stairs as if entering the subway station at the roundabout at the S. entrance to Ft. Tryon park, and instead of making a left into the station, continue down a second flight of stairs to arrive at the courts.

--From Bennett Ave., enter the 190th St. A station through the tunnel, go up the elevators instead of going to the platform. Exit the station, and make a left down the stairs to the courts (going up the stairs instead puts you on Ft. Washington Ave.)

--If you're taking the A line, exit 190th St. through the northernmost station exit, take the elevator up, and continue as above.

We usually get a full court going, and there's a second court we can spill onto. When we have more folks, we rotate players in between games. These games are organized by Uptown Community Church in Washington Heights. That said, it's not a "church event," but a way to bring everyone together in our great neighborhood! Come out and play! Lastly--if you're prone to mosquito bites, bring repellant! There are no water fountains at this location, so bring fluids, too. The courts are shielded from evening sunlight, so you may not need sunscreen.


Balls and nets are provided!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
