Monday expat social volleyball, 7:00

Sportcentrum Kralingen

Up for a friendly after-work game of volleyball in Rotterdam with other expats? PLEASE READ RSVP RULES Seeing the popularity of the weekly Monday evening volleyball event, we are continuing during the summer, but at a different location. All expats are welcome. No volleyball experience required. This is meant to be a fun-social-healthy event. Dress: gym shoes and clothing, no street shoes (must change to gym shoes). How to get there: 5 minute walk from Oostplein metro station or free off street parking in front of the gym Contribution: €3 per person (to cover gym rental) RSVP RULES Attendance is limited. If the RSVP list fills up please add your name to the waiting list. There are usually a few cancellations. Joining the waiting list ensures that we can notify you when room comes free. Please be considerate to those on the waiting list by changing your reservation to "No" at least 24 hours in advance when you are not coming. It's frustrating for everyone when someone changes at the last minute or simple does not show up, especially those who take the trouble to put their name on the waiting list. In case of cancellation in the last 24 hours please contact Thom by sending a private message.
