Come join us and make new Oakland friends with our all-inclusive LGBTQA group for recreational and competitive volleyball.

The group's purpose is for people of all backgrounds, races, and skill levels to come together as a like-minded group and participate in a fun activity and feel safe and secure without fear of hate, persecution and ridicule within the Oakland area.


• Play is divided into two sessions: an early session dedicated to competitive 4s, and the main session open to players at all levels.

• Check in: When you show up, say hi to an organizer and tell them you are here! Players who RSVP will be given priority to play.

12-2pm Fours : You must play at least above the intermediate level and be able to keep up with a game of 4's. If you are new or the organizers haven’t seen you play, please RSVP for Open Play during the first week you join.

1:30-5pm Open Play : For players at all levels. Format will vary up to 6v6.


Our “mission” is to include everyone who wants to play at a wonderful public space. At the same time, we want to provide space for both those who want to play more recreationally and those who want to play at a higher level skill. More people joining us means that we need more organization, more time and money.

• Go with the flow: We are here to have fun. Though we try to make sure people get to play at their level of skill, it may just not be possible all the time. So, join in, play, make friends and laugh. Be respectful and be happy.

• Contribute A few of us have shelled out hundreds to buy the nets, balls, tents, and subscription to Meetup. 1$ contribution is always appreciated towards the expenses!

• Help: In addition to money, a few of us always bring the equipment and the tents, show up early to set up and stay to the end to pack up and clean up. So, your HELP is greatly appreciated. Bring food and drinks to share. Show up early to set up or stay to the end to help pack up. Please pick up your own trash!
