Indoor VOLLEYBALL (called Wallyball).

every Monday

TIME: 7:30pm at Red Bug Park - arrive by 7:20/7:30 pm - (we play for 2 hours and 20 minutes)

A group of Wallyball players have been playing /on-going at Red Bug Lake Park for over four years (into our fifth year) and has quite a following.  Usually eighteen people (sometimes even two dozen) show up each Monday.   Space is limited due to the demand.

If you like volleyball you will probably enjoy wallyball.    **New players who are interested please send an email to Royce prior for more info. - ALL NEW PLAYERS PLEASE LOOK AT both of these YOUTUBE VIDEOS of Wallyball in action - links are below.   **Not all of our player's skills are like this, but they are all able to keep up with the action.

For some, the sport might be too demanding / as it requires certain and demanding physical abilities.  Some can quickly take to the game while others don't.  We play 4 vs 4 -or-  3 vs 3 format.

Have you played volleyball ?? Even if you haven't, are you willing / able to take on the demands of such physical activity?  

**Since the group has grown, and for safety and the fairness of the play/players...  and since we are balancing the needs of the active-committed players — THUS any player who has never played volleyball and/or who might be unable to handle the physical demands of the required action should first attend a special test session - Please SEND AN EMAIL to Royce requesting more info)..  I will be happy to answer / discuss your questions. 

We can also set up a special time so new players can test their abilities.  -  And there is another separate Wallyball group which plays on Wednesday nights with an easier 6 vs 6 format.

PLEASE send an email requesting info (and your interests and your abilities).

 

 

=============== ABOUT WALLYBALL============

This awesome sport adds a whole new dimension to the exciting game of Volleyball. The general concepts of wallyball are very similar to indoor volleyball. Featured in a racquetball or squash court, Wallyball provides the element of surprise as an ordinary volley can go a whole new direction with spiking the ball off the walls in many directions.


Wallyball is not just volleyball played in a racquetball court. It is a separate sport with separate rules, and playing the sport requires the development of a separate set of skills. Wallyball is a faster game than volleyball and a must is hand eye coordination, balance, strength, and agility. You must have a good combination of these attributes. Wallyball is a great workout and could be compared to the speed of an indoor soccer game.

Wallyball is more than just off the wall; it's crazy, wild, and exciting!

=========================================
