What we're about

Welcome to "Santa Barbara Beach Volleyball". We are also on " Facebook Groups (https://www.facebook.com/groups/SantaBarbaraBeachVolleyball/) "(Web & mobile app (http://www.facebookgroups.com/#)), come join us there (under the same group name) to see what else we're up to within the group. Also on there, we're able to share beyond "Meetup" and also announce impromptu games for on and off-court group activities, hiking, dining, hangouts, outings and all our best pictures and albums. However our official weekly volleyball events are listed and posted only here on "Meetup". All skill levels, ages, members and their guests are welcome. We Dig, Set and Spike! and teach beginners to play the game in it's fair and proper manner. We will occasionally call you out on improper ball handling and fouls, but are put in place for your knowledge and game progression. This FUN group is open to everyone who loves volleyball and wants to make loads of new friends, socialize and network (and you will, very fast). We play multiple times a week and all year round, both on East Beach (https://goo.gl/maps/iKfV2YHP8PH2) and West Beach (https://goo.gl/maps/jkj1CfbJgz72). We play 2x2, 3x3 and sometimes 4x4. Come at any time on or after the start time of the event and feel free to leave at will. We are at the courts from start time until last light (The entire day or when the last 4 players)
Our play days consist of approx 20-40 players, that are spread across many courts on any given day. (Event RSVP's do not reflect actual player turnout). We have a rotating regular player count of approx 175, and regular connected member count of approx 230 and all rapidly growing year after year. So check our schedule and calendar, I'm sure that you will find a suitable day there to come out to even relax, have some sun, fun, exercise and socialize with the greatest group of friendly members who passionately love the sport and each others company. See you there!. Feel free to contact me. Greg, Co-Organizer.

Saturday Volleyball, East Beach @ 10am & Eats/Drinks after (Optional)

Location visible to members

Average Turnout - (20-45) We are also on Facebook Groups under the same name. First to arrive are kindly asked to post the court # and location (Row/Across from the car park), upon arrival. Bring your friends too!, sufficient drinking water, swimwear, and perhaps some sand socks if its a really hot day out. Keep in contact with any informative incoming messages from players on your meetup.com mobile app as the kickoff time draws near. Drinks/Eats/Hangout (Optional): Saturday has always brought a great player turnout at the courts, right to the very end of the day, hence we started suggesting an after the days play hangout on the town for light eats and drinks to all those interested. Every week its been really a blast hanging out after, socializing and just having fun with the other members. So if you are not quite ready to head back home after the game, please stick around and jump-in with the others who wish to do the same. For those who travel from a distance away, do come prepared with additional clothes if you desire. Exchange contact cell phone numbers and or request from Greg to be added to the (WhatsApp application IOS/Android) "SBBV Eats/Drinks Hangout" member list. (All group notifications apply. Mute option available in the app) Free Parking: There is some free street parking along E Cabrillo Blvd overlooking the courts but it usually fills up quickly, there are also some at Ninos Dr, S Milpas St (a bit far though). Paid Parking and Restrooms: There are couple of pay next to the courts & beach, the pay lot just east of the Cabrillo Bath House and just across from the Hyatt and cross street Ninos is your best bet. The volleyball courts and picnic area are just east of the east lot. There is a small bridge to the volleyball courts from the east parking lot.
