Volleyball is an Adult Coed group of volleyball enthusiasts that meet from 6:30 – 8:30/9:00 pm on Tuesday nights. We play pick up games of loosely organized volleyball on two courts in Grand Hall 2 & 3. We are open to anyone from High School up through AARP certified. We do ask that you have basic volleyball skills (pass, set, spike) with a willingness to work on improving your skills, a reasonable knowledge of the game, and the physical ability to play the game. The level of play is well beyond the just for fun, backyard, slap the ball around kind of game, but still a little short of organized, competitive, indoor volleyball. If you are interested in exploring possible participation in Tuesday Night Volleyball, you can contact Pastor Cary Sharpe by phone at 410.551.8500 ext 1208. Or you could just flag him down and ask him about it at church. He loves to talk about volleyball!
