What we're about
A networking resource for Madison-area volleyball players -- a place where we can share information about good places to play and upcoming tournaments in the area, organize for regular open vball groups, find teammates and subs for league and tournament teams, etc. Come play with us and make new vball friends.
Oct-April (indoor season): We don't own a building, so we just play with other existing groups in the area. Several area rec departments offer coed-open groups and/or competitive leagues in school gyms. See our PDF at http://files.meetup.com/3785372/VB%20Venues%202014-2015.pdf for a partial list of popular groups in the area.
May-Sept (outdoor season): We organize weekly open coed v-ball gigs on outdoor sand courts in the Madison area. These are just friendly pick-up games, free to all. See the Meetup announcements/invitations for details.
About "Intermediate" Level Volleyball: Most of the groups we organize are for intermediate-level (and higher) vb players. We also have some groups that welcome rec-level players, and we can easily organize more if people will step up to lead/host them. Different people have different standards for intermediate play. For our purposes, "intermediate" means you play a team-oriented (three hits) game, and are sufficiently skilled to be able to pass and set successfully more often than not. That's all we ask.
ABOUT THE RSVPs: RSVP counts here are poor indicators of actual attendance, which is almost always higher than our RSVPs suggest, so don't let a low number scare you away. On the other hand, if you do expect to play, your RSVP will probably encourage others to join us.
