Hi All, If you are free, why not join us to play some volleyball this Easter Monday public holiday? Same as Sunday volleyball, this event is open to all levels (beginners and advanced players welcome). Cost: $1 per person if you RSVP; $5 per person if you don't RSVP. Please RSVP. RSVPs will close 1 hour before start time (1pm). We play in the large flat open area near the Kiosk/Cafe and/or children's playground.

Hi all. PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION BELOW: Unlike fun-day Sunday Volleyball which is open to all playing levels, our Saturday session is for ADVANCED PLAYERS ONLY. This means that you have played more than 100 games, know the basic rules, are able to serve, receive (dig, pass), set and attack (hit, spike, tip) at least 80% of the time (8 out of 10 attempts), and that faults will be called and counted, including net-touches. Some might be advanced players elsewhere, but be considered beginners for this event. If you are unsure, you are welcome to join us and try us out once, no charge. SPECIAL RULE for playing at the park: If you are in the front row, you are not allowed to HIT the ball with your feet! You will get 1 warning. Repeat offenders will be sent to the penalty box (out for 1 set) and/or asked to leave. NUMBER OF PLAYERS: Also, we will implement a maximum number of players per net to improve the playing experience for all. We aim to have 12 players per net (6 vs 6), with a maximum of 2 substitutes per side. Depending on the number of players, we might have 3 teams of 5 or 6, or even play 4 vs 4, which is harder than 6 vs 6, but if you are an advanced player, you should be able to do this. Some weeks, if we have enough players, we will set up another net. If we do this, we might split the games into "Advanced" and "More Advanced". (See "WAITLIST" below). RSVP: You MUST RSVP to this event to ensure you get a spot. When you RSVP, if there is an available spot, your name will be on the "Going" list. If there isn't an available spot, your name will be on the "Waitlist". If you are bringing a friend with you who is NOT on Meetup, you must add them as +1 to your own RSVP. If you are NOT on the "Going" list, any available playing spots will be given to people on the "Going" list first. If the net is full, you will not be allowed to play (we must be fair to those who have RSVP'd and are on the "Going" list). WAITLIST: If all the "Going" spots are taken but are still keen on coming, please join the Waitlist. If we get enough people on the waitlist, we can setup another net and so will open up more spots. NO SHOWS: If you are on the "Going" list and can no longer make it, you MUST change your RSVP to "No" to free up your spot for others. If you are listed as "Going" and do not show up, this is a "NO SHOW". If you repeatedly do No Shows (e.g. 2 or more times), next time there is someone on the Waitlist, your spot will be given away. [You must finalise your RSVP by 10am on the day of the game, to give those on the waitlist a chance to see this and plan their day.] WHERE: We play in Sydney Park, on the area known as The Green. The Green is located near the cafe and the children's playground. There are 3 parking lots in the park (does that sound a bit weird to you too?) The park is located across the road from St Peters train station and is on the 422 and 370 bus routes. Here's a map of where we play: https://www.meetup.com/Sydney-Volleyball-in-the-Park/photos/12360902/ and here is a Google pin location: https://www.google.com/maps/place/33%C2%B054'32.0%22S+151%C2%B011'00.8%22E/@-33.908883,151.1830148,269m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m9!1m2!2m1!1sSydney+volleyball!3m5!1s0x0:0x0!7e2!8m2!3d-33.9088832!4d151.1835616 The $5 fee payable on the day when you show up.

Hi all. We play in Sydney Park, on the area known as The Green. The Green is located near the cafe and the children's playground.

Here's a map of where we play. (https://www.meetup.com/Sydney-Volleyball-in-the-Park/photos/12360902/) A gold coin donation is very much appreciated. Note: If we have two sets of nets available and enough people, we will divide the people equally across the 2 nets, trying to match playing level as much as possible. Cheers all.
