Charles brings 4 balls and 2 court boundary line.
Total beginners to advanced players are welcome to join us for a fun competitive workout. Your welcome to bring friends - just mark them down as guests.
TWO HOUR PARKING LOT:
I don't recommend turning from Ocean Ave turn lane to Seaside Terrace if heading North since the turn lane is for PCH and so many cars head both ways.
Instead, head WEST (toward the beach) on Pico. Where Pico ends turn Right on Appian Way.
Turn LEFT at Seaside Terrace. RIGHT turn into parking lot.
The entrance to the volleyball parking lot is on Seaside Terrace, not Appian Way posted previously. The entrance side of the 2 hour parking lot is visible from the volleyball courts if you can park there.
Parking is $1.00 per hour with a limit of two hours parking. If you stay longer, nothing stops you from walking about 150 feet to pay for 2 more hours. I've never seen them chalk a rear tire to know you didn't move your car.
SANTA MONICA FREEWAY EXIT FOR COURTS:
Take the 4th & 5th offramp from the Santa Monica Freeway # 10.
Stay left for the 4th street offramp.
Take the center lane to turn Left on 4th.
Turn Right on Pico and keep going till Pico ends and turn Right on Appian Way.
Left at Seaside Terrace stop sign but the lot is visible now.
ALL DAY PARKING AT THE PIER
Enter Appian Way from Pico listed above.
Just past the bridge overhead TURN RIGHT.
I believe all day parking is $6.00 weekdays Winter Rate. Paying the
all day parking can save getting a $50.00 ticket.
HOW TO FIND ME
I have a blue pack and volleyball yellow bag at the side of the court net you can look for. Cell is 310 938 7332 if you have trouble finding us.
SUGGESTIONS TO WEAR/BRING
Suggest wearing t-shirt & shorts or swim clothes to not overheat playing even in cold winter months. But bring sweat top/bottom or medium weight coat to stay warm if wind blows to not be cold. Wind sometimes speeds up after 11 AM to 1 PM can be cold.
I recommend bringing a bag/pack with more clothing layers if it cools down or gets cold. My pack includes: something to drink, suntan lotion, sunglasses, hat, ball pump, etc. The bag is always ready to go to not hunt around home for things sometimes needed to be able to grab and go without thinking or remembering anything extra. I have Bags for badminton, tennis and sailing are ready to go also.
Most days Malibu to Palos Verdes are visible. Is your gym free with such a spectacular view?
It only takes about 10 minutes to warm up on most Winter cold mornings-so a beach workout year round is possible.
I was sick with a cold or flu on 3/20 and only came to drop off balls for people to play with. If I cannot host a meetup it will be nice to have one or two hosts that can bring balls & boundaries. Any volunteers? This should be a rare event.
