Adult Open Play

***Sign-Up On-Line In Advance***

Tired of waiting on long lines or showing up 3 hours early to a gym just to try and get a spot. Well wait no more!

Sign-Up in advance to participate in Big City Volleyball’s weekly Open Play Tuesday through Sunday afternoons and evenings with locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn & Queens.
All gym locations have two courts, conveniently located just a few blocks from major subway stations.

Who Can Participate:
Intermediate to Advanced players only! Players must be able to handle a free ball, pass accurately, serve consistently, and play bump-set-spike volleyball rather than just returning the ball to the other side of the court. (In Big City that’s Divisions 3, 4 & 5). If you cannot do the above, you will be asked to leave. You don’t have to currently play in the league to participate.

*Please note that in order to play on the Advanced Court you must be familiar with running both 6-2 & 5-1 rotations, know proper blocking and spiking techniques and be able to consistently pass hard driven balls. Level of play is equivalent to Big City Division 3 or better. Club or College experience strongly encouraged.

**If you do not meet this criteria we will move you to the intermediate court or ask you to leave the gym. Arguing with League Supervisors will lead to a ban from all Big City Activities.
