On Saturdays in May we will be holding outdoor volleyball QK doubles series. These are friendship tournament event meetups that are reverse coed doubles matches played in a King-Queen format, meaning that you will be playing with and against different people during pool play. Top players after pool play will compete in a playoff format.
If few women sign up, then the format converts to men's height, King of the Beach format.
This is a friendship tournament format, meaning call your own faults, as there are no referees.
The organizers for these events will be Matt BenDaniel and Brian Lee.
We will be using the ruleset listed in the first post on the following: http://www.meetup.com/volleyball-122/messages/boards/thread/8548572?thread=8548572
We understand that not everyone has a car. The tournament organizer can help you get a carpool ride to/from the event.
Public Transportation: The 8:30 a.m. MBTA Newburyport/Rockport Commuter Train from North Station to Lynn Station is only a 19-minute ride, then a 6-block (15 minute) walk to Nahant Beach. MBTA buses which go there include: 439, 441, 442, 448, 449, 426, 429, 431, 435, 436, 455, and 456.

There are public restroom facilities at the beach.
The events will start at 9 AM and will likely last at least until the early afternoon (~2 PM). If you would like to play in this event you must commit to staying at least through the end of pool play. Remember to bring snacks/food and water/beverages, as this event will involve a significant amount of volleyball play.
This event is intended for players with experience playing reverse coed doubles format. To sign up for one or more of these events, please send an email to Matt using the following link on meetup: http://volleyball.meetup.com/122/message/?recipientId=1878223

Signup partner name (if you have a signup partner)
Preferably, each player in a signup pair should send an email.
For this event we will aim to have player numbers in a multiple of four so that there are no sitouts for players. Preference is given to AA/A/BB players who sign up in male/female pairs, although some single signups will be allowed. Note that sending an email does not guarantee a spot to play; spots are only guaranteed if you are assigned a Yes RSVP.
