Public Indoor hard court Vball 40th &Kipling in NE metro(City of Wheat Ridge)

On November 5th only 7 people showed up, and 4 of those were beginners. The week before had 22 people with about 3/4s of those being excellent players. Two or three beginners, and the rest in between that. So what I am saying is you will never know what will happen at this drop in.

If you are thinking of coming, but waiting for more people to RSVP, then just go ahead and RSVP 'Yes'. You can change it later if you change your mind. Sometimes what happens is a bunch of people are waiting for others to RSVP and it ends up that not enough do, and so we don't have enough.

Last year there were sometimes 3 plus teams playing at this location on Tuesdays, but I don't know if they have come indoors yet. Most of them don't RSVP on this website.

Because this is a public recreation center, the levels for play sometimes are everything to expert to beginner.

Last year attendees were usually intermediate to expert level. Attendees that are only experienced  playing volleyball at picnics and such are usually unhappy playing at this location because the higher level of play.

This video is similar to the play that usually takes place at this location. This video is something I found on the internet of another location. Notice how the setter on the close net is taking the 2nd touch of the ball to the right of the center, and he is setting all front row hitters, and occasional a back row hitter. Sometimes if the ball isn't passed to him someone else with set.

If you know of location that we could rent and control the level of play, contact me, Davey, the principal organizer for this group.

FYI Wheat Ridge rec charges a $6.50 fee for non-resident drop-ins. They have punch cards and memberships for lower prices.

If we have 24 people attending they will put up another net.

The Andersen gym can be rented if anyone wants to take on that responsibility, then the level of play could be whatever level you like.

 

This recreation center has scheduled drop-in on  Sunday, but rarely are there enough to have the required 6 people to set up the net. Sunday would be a great time to have intermediate or beginner volleyball as the gym has volleyball scheduled, but currently no one is attending.

    I dropped by after watching college volleyball. They had enough teams for two nets, and it divided up to rec' on one side and mostly advanced (BB) on the side. I took some pictures. I will look through them and see if there any worth posting.

    Make sure you sign up with the rec' center employee sitting at the desk to the side of the net to get on a team. And sign up again every time you come off the court.

    I won't be playing due to 'tennis elbow'.
