Village resident organizes pickup volleyball games

When it comes to summer, outdoor activities always top the list of fun things to do. For some that’s listening to music at outdoor venues, for others outdoor seating at a favorite restaurant, or even swimming in the pool or just playing outside. For some high school and college age Village residents, getting together to play volleyball has been the thing to do.

Group organizer Lauren Nelson said “It started with a want to play volleyball regularly. However, joining summer leagues can be confusing and expensive. The idea was thrown out over social media and people loved it, so we started and it has grown ever since.” After a post on Instagram gained some interest, discussions began about where and when to play. Initially the group was going to play in someone’s backyard, but instead they set up at Martin P. Roy Park, 20121 Cinnabar Drive.

Since Memorial Day, the group has been playing a few times a week at the park from about 4:30 p.m. until dusk (weather permitting). They could use a few extra players on Mondays; interested high school or college co-eds can just show up ready to play!
