Pickup Sand Volleyball in Mundelein ***NEW LOCATION***

***We're trying out a new location this week!***

Crossroads Restaurant & Tavern is allowing us to play at their (very nice) courts.  NO outside food or drinks.  They do have a full food & beverage service right next to the courts.  After the event, I'd love to get the group's feedback on changing to here vs. the Park District.

 

If you haven't been out to our Sunday outdoor games, a little info... There are a lot of competitive players, but there are some beginners too.  We try to even things up based on skill level, and when there are 2 nets, even split off the very competitive players for a few games on their own.  Most games are 6v6, but we sometimes play 2's also.

This is family a friendly group/event.  No language, fighting, etc tolerated.  You'll be asked to leave, and removed from the group.

We don't allow the kids to play volleyball with adults.  It's not safe for them, or fun for the rest of us.  There is plenty of room around the courts for kids to play in the sand.

 

Come play! All skill levels welcome.

Bring water, sunscreen, sunglasses, and your A-Game. :)

    I enjoy playing at both locations. My comcern about Crossroads is the size of the court. It seemed they were shorter but i don't
    know that for sure. With the great turnout and playing 6 on 6 it seemed tighter the normal. On a side note... A couple of ladies commented on the cute shirt I was wearing. Just wanted to mention it is from a just launched women's active apparel company called. Swirlgear. They are from Chicago and I help them sell their product. The wicking fabric, fit and colors are awesome. Check out their website at www.swirlgear.com. If interested and have questions please message me. If you'd like to order, use promo code 896 to get free shipping! Enjoy! Thank you!

    I loved it there. Wish I could have stayed longer, but had a softball game to get to.

    My 2 cents on Crossroads:
    1. Not as much loose sand so ground is harder than in most places I've played which I'd consider a negative. I slipped & fell 1 time as I was chasing a ball due to this. Is this just b/c of the rain in recent days or is it always like this? 2. Tall fence. It tends to keep the ball from going too far out moreso than the Park district, but if it does go over the fence it seems more inconvenient to get the ball. Also, there's no chance of digging the ball if it hits the fence since it would be considered out-of-bounds. I've been able to dig out some balls going way out of bounds in the Park district. So I consider this a negative. 3. No outside food/drink allowed so can't do the BBQ thing here.

    4. More vehicle traffic & less open parking spaces than Park district.

    I didn't see anything that was better than the Park district. Overall, I prefer Park district over Crossroads but its not a big deal which place we play.
