Wisconsin Place Community Center, Friendship Blvd. , Chevy Chase, MD
This is a weekly, recurring activity, only impeded by inclement weather, annual two week cleaning closings and acts of God, as it were. So, PLEASE, come out and play....
Hours here have been somewhat impacted. They now close at NINE PM. As an adjustment, the management has offered to allow us to begin at 5:30 PM. SO, let us show up early, folks!
This Meetup location is especially suited to those dependent upon the Metro rail and Bus systems. This location is one block off of Wisconsin Avenue, a block north of the DC line, just up from Mazza Gallerie and a Metro station. Parking is really the worst issue here at present. If you drive, expect to walk a couple blocks or pay to park....
For whatever reason, Wisconsin Place CC has yet to suffer the slings and arrows of Youth Basketball overrunning their facility. It is brand spanking new and a lovely place to play. PLEASE come out and play so that we can play 4s, 5s, 6s. If another eight of you guys show up, we can play some 6s. Compared to what we have been playing that would be a walk in the park. We need more bodies on the courts so check this place out. It rocks! So, come on down and join us..........new uprights, new nets..........OLD balls......all the backboards and the divider move up and down with a key....very high tech.
Please RSVP so we know how many to expect to join us. Come on, you guys. We can fill this place with up to 24 total players, counting in the 8 or so already there weekly. See you there.
So, check us out and see if we are up to your personal playing standards. What have you got to lose, except a couple pounds and some sweat? You might actually have a good time.....Hope to see you all out on the courts.....our courts, that is.
Speaking of which, I do suggest that with two courts that we play winners from each court and so on all evening long. Playing the same players over and over again may not be as entertaining as switching up. Just a suggestion for you all to consider.
Now, if I could JUST find some players to go out afterwards for a couple cold ones to rehydrate, THAT would be lovely. Any suggestions for nearby watering holes will be entertained. Meiwah is open until 10:15 for sitdown, Chipotle is open until 10 PM.....both across Willard from Wisconsin Place. THe Golden Booeymonger is open until 1 am and is a block south. Across the street from there, Chadwick's kitchen serves until 1:30 and TUESDAY is Longneck Beer night.....$2.50 or $3 a bottle. Join me for a beer?
Join me for a COLD one and a nosh, post Volleyball games. One must needs re hydrate.
