I know some of the new members asked when the next game would be, so I've scheduled this evening weeknight game. I'll pick a different location if you send me some suggestions, otherwise we'll play at the Fairfax court again. Based on the poll, 7pm is an ok time to start. More details to follow.
They are on the South side of 66 (exit 69) off of N. Sycamore St. They are right of the W&OD Bike Trail as well. Both courts have nets and normally both courts are wide open. They are within walking distance or literally a short 30 second drive
1) East Falls Church Park - left off of N. Sycamore onto 17th St N left on N. Roosevelt St - all the way at end of street
2) Madison Manor Park - left off of N. Sycamore onto 12th Pl N street becomes N Quantico St., parking on N. Quantico St. after intersection w/ 12th Rd. N
They're literally about a 5 minute walk from each other - the bike path right along 66 connects them. Normally both courts are free, I've never seen more than a few folks shooting some horse, and if you has a few we can always move to the other. Both are in a park like area, so trees and nature and stuff are there, makes for a cool little backdrop.
They're a little closer to the city, but the great thing is you can Metro to both parks - the Metro stop (East Falls Ch) is about a 5 minute walk and also it's not so far down in the city you can't drive there either, it's before the massive Glebe Rd (Ballston/Clarendon Exit) There's usually no traffic heading in the direction of DC at 7pm on any weekday and by the time we're done playing the traffic heading West has subsided. I think there might be lights at one of the courts- not positive though. I think it a great location for everyone actually, real easy to get to!!
