"INTERMEDIATE"­ COURT IN ELMHURST (NEW VENUE!)

NOTE: We will be playing in Berens park in Elmhurst.  Click on the 'Berens Park' link above for directions.

 

"INTERMEDIATE" COURT IN ELMHURST

This will be something for the players who are 'C' level and low 'B' level

 

We play from 6pm til we can't see any more.  We have plenty of bug spray and water available.  You are welcome to bring your own beverages.  Alcohol is officially not allowed in the park (so, if you bring it, disguise it and don't let me know about it.)  We collect a humble $2 donation from each person for each night.

 

What is the "INTERMEDIATE" Court?

This is a grass court net

Depending on how many people sign up, there could be anywhere from 4 to 6 people on each court.  If enough people sign up, we will set up 2 separate 'Intermediate' nets.

 

Wait List and Extra Net

If the event fills up quickly and we have a significant amount of people on the Wait List, I will add an extra net and Up to 8 more spots.

Other Information

 

Maintaining Quality of Play

Since we are not qualified to be judges of volleyball talent, you will have to "self police".  In other words, you'll have to politely ask those who don't have the required ability level not to play on that court (or you can tell me and I'll deliver the message.)  This is for safety reasons.  We don't want anyone getting hurt.

If you feel that you cannot keep up with the level of play at this court or it is not competitive enough for you, feel free to move to another court.  This is why will have multiple courts.  No one is here to judge you personally based on your volleyball ability.  This is all for good fun.

You'll also have to "self police" on the rules etc., but I am betting that is par for the course.

 

After The Games

You are welcome to join the rest of the gang (from all 3 courts) as we go to a local watering hole.   We usually have about 20 people.

 

Three Strikes Rule

We'll be enforcing a "3 Strikes" Rule for these events for those who RSVP "YES" and then "no show" with no explanation.

 

* The net is a Park & Sun Net.

      Hi Ela, you probably went to the old venue. We were forced to go to a new place in Elmhurst called Beren's park. It's not too far from where we were and easy to get to off the highway.

    Why the change to Elmhurst? Not that I'm complaining because it's closer to my house :) Just wondering.

      The park district over there is requiring we have an insurance policy to play at Knolls Park; so, at least for the short term, we have to move.
