What we're about

Come on out and join us on the beach! This group is dedicated to making friends and sharing our love of volleyball. We welcome all players who are at least at an intermediate level. If you're not at least at an intermediate level, you may be removed from the courts. These aren't ultra-serious games, but fun and competitive games for at least intermediate players. We meet on a weekly basis to raise funds for a variety of causes, local, national, and global. It's free to play, though we appreciate donations! If enough players show up, we use skill-based match making. Good players play with and against good players; better players with better players; and the best players play with and against the best players. We'll mix it up sometimes too.

We play by the official FIVB rules (with a couple of exceptions). Please make sure you're familiar with them. Those rules for 2s can be found here:

You are an intermediate player if you can:

-consistently get a legal serve into the opponent's side of the court

-consistently return a serve with a legal pass to your setter

-consistently attack the ball into the opponent's side of the court when you're set

If you're unable to do all three of these, there are plenty of other groups for beginners that play in San Diego where you can improve your skills to that of an intermediate level.
