Starting in March, we will be enforcing the BB level.
We don'twant true BB players sitting on the waitlist for C=/B players.
Cost: $10 At least 6 games a night.
What is BB? Here is the description: PLEASE READ
First and foremost: Players pass and set to a target at a rate of over 90%. If you can't pass, please take some lessons and come back.
Play is skilled. Exclusively play within a 6-2 / 5-1 scheme. Each player can pass, set, and attack. They serve with power and accuracy (but not yet for aces). Most attacks are hit downward with power – landing generally in the back third of the court.
Thanks Periodically, roll shots and dinks are also seen. Single blocks are attempted on almost every attack, and occasionally double blocks are executed successfully. Everybody here knows the game well, sees the whole court in order to execute plays.
People are told they are BB a lot but if you can't pass to the setter, if you can't serve-in consistently, or if you are set and more than half the time you hit the ball into the net or the back wall, you are probably a C+ player.
We will ask lower level players to return when they increase their skill level. Please don't be offended by this. This is for safety and to keep the skill level consistent.
We play hard and, most important, we have fun! If you haven't played in awhile, feel free to join us. We will get you back into it.
2) Prebooking: Players with a proven BB level of play will get first dibs at pre-booking - exception will be repeat offenders for no-shows or cancellations.
3) NO-SHOW: Please don't! A no-show is any reservation canceled on Monday that is not filled by someone. So, if you leave us hanging, you are on the hook. If you can't make it, please email me in the Meet-up message center.
4) WAIT-LIST: WAIT-LIST WAIT-LIST
This used to be the best feature of Meet-up.com but with their new software update it is now the worst! If you are on the waitlist, be aware that we don't use the automatic feature because it causes no-shows. If someone cancels more than the day of the event, I will email for a BB/A replacement to the people on the waitlist. The first person to email me back gets the spot. It is more work for me but it guarantees me the person wants to play and will make it. If someone posts a comment they can't make it, I will email the group too. If you reply to the comment, it doesn't guarantee the spot is yours.
Once we max out, the reservation limit will be lowered. This is the only way to turn off the auto-waitlist. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THIS!! The day of the event, the people on the waitlist will be switched to "not-going". WHY? Here is why: After everyone is switched I increase the maximum back to 24 which then turns on the Auto-waitlist. Everyone can now rejoin the waitlist group. Now, if someone cancels the day off and if you are on the waitlist you know you can play that night -right?!
