Saturday Competitive Indoor VBall: B, BB Level

This indoor pick-up game is targeted to B and BB level players. This can be defined as:
-Solid individual skills.
-Ability to play in formation ("5-1," "4-2," etc.) and in position (designated setter, OH, etc.).
-Knowledge of the full rule set (net calls, legal ball handling, etc.).

If you’re still learning the game, that’s ok! The Wednesday “Winter Volleyball” Meetup plays at a recreational level and is a great place to get experience. If in doubt, please try the Wednesday game first. If you are unsure of your level of play, please see the attached link which explains the classifications that are used by USAVolleyball:

Additionally, players on the wait list are not guaranteed a spot in the team rotation. You are more than welcome to still come to the event, but players that are registered will have first priority.

Entry is free for City of Alexandria residents; the cost is $8 for non-residents. There is only one court available, so attendance is capped.

    Recommend that organizers ask players who do not consistently play at the required skill level move to the recreation Meetup.

    Helping my GF get her truck repaired early in the morning. Will come by after 9 am to either wait to rotate into some games or to watch play while her truck is being repaired. She is a BB level setter and has a very consistent serve. I know of a Saturday afternoon location in upper NW DC that has two open courts from 130 to 349 PM every Saturday plus has Thursday nights from 630 to 849 PM....with Free parking right across the street from the indoor location. Some weeks we are full on two courts and some weeks barely enough to fill one court. Ask me if you have interest in playing there....

    Iain, it was a pleasure to play with you this Saturday. Thank you for letting me play with your team. How did you like my curve ball serve?


    Per Octavia at the front desk, Play starts at NINE THIRTY, not 10:30 am. I am talking to the Center director about getting us access to the scoreboard to facilitate keeping the correct score. She seems nice Jesse is nice too. Do you all know of any good places to go and rehydrate after we finish playing??? I am usually dying of thirst after 2 hours of VB.

      For the record, gentlemen, I neither made demands nor requested changes from the staff at the Center. I asked for information, politely. I was told, politely, that the fee if one is NOT a current Old Town resident is FOUR dollars, not Eight dollars. Both Octavia and Jesse are very nice people and we related very well. I helped him to put away the volleyball standards and nets which he appreciated. So, no demands were made. My only real suggestion has to do with being able to use the electronic scoreboard to keep score so as to remove inaccurate score keeping as being a possible source of contention in any way. Since there are three teams there on every scheduled meetup, the team sitting out can easily and accurately maintain the score for the two teams playing.

      You're welcome to come and go as you please. However, you're on the waitlist again, so it will be the same deal as last week. Be kind to your fellow players and hopefully it will work out for you.
