What we're about


California State beaches in San Diego County, including Ponto, Tamarack and Frazee, have not fully re-opened for volleyball play. They are technically only open for play between members of the same household and youth volleyball. Should you decide to play, you do so at your own risk. WE ARE NOT SETTING UP NETS AS A GROUP. We are however lending our nets out to responsible, active and paid-up members. See below for details.


Founded in April 2009, NCV started as a group of friends who banded together to share the costs of owning and maintaining (expensive) volleyball systems and gear. While the group has grown in size, cost sharing remains our central purpose. Our members usually play on the sand courts at South Carlsbad State Beach (aka South Ponto) next to the Batiquitos Lagoon jetty but you can also find them on open courts at Warm Waters, Frazee, Dog Beach and Oceanside.

Please note that we expect our members to be intermediate level and higher. If you are thinking of joining, you must know how to serve, pass, set and hit with some consistency. The 2x2 game in sand takes a fair amount of stamina. It is also a safety concern. "Jungle ball" is dangerous and we do not want anyone to get injured due to unsafe play. If you are a novice, we can suggest groups and clinics where you can learn quickly. (Sorrento Valley Beach Volleyball ( https://www.meetup.com/Sorrento-Valley-Beach-Volleyball-Group/ ) or Wave Volleyball are great places to start.)

You MUST also read up on our rules here: NCV Rules of Play & Conduct (https://www.meetup.com/NorthCoastVolleyball/messages/boards/thread/51702261/#131408611 (https://www.meetup.com/NorthCoastBeachVolleyBall/messages/boards/thread/51702261/#131408611))

Due to COVID-19, we are temporarily suspending membership dues except for ACTIVE equipment users. ALL money goes to cover equipment (nets, lines & balls) and our Meetup.com fees.
