Volleyball Beach league nights have always been a great way for unwinding after the workday with friends and co-workers. We recently had the pleasure of chatting it up and getting to know one our Wednesday night teams a little better – a great group of friends from Avila University. Learn more about them and what they love most about playing together at Volleyball Beach!

Do you all work together at Avila University?

Yes, we all work at Avila University, but each of us works in a different department. Meeting up here once a week gives us the opportunity to spend time together and catch up since we don’t always see each other around campus. Another great advantage of Volleyball Beach is it’s just right around the corner from the university.

How long have you guys been playing together?

We’ve had this team for 7 years. Over time, we have had different people join the team which has kept it going strong. We play together every Wednesday during the Happy Hour league time and we also play during every league season. Our favorite time to play is definitely the summer because the atmosphere is wonderful and, of course it’s great to be able to play outside!

What do you enjoy most about playing together at Volleyball Beach?

We love the camaraderie and getting to spend time together each week. We see it as a mid-week break that we all really look forward to. We head out straight from work then we get here and relax, hang out together, and get a little exercise at the same time!

Do you guys like to do other things together outside of the Beach?

After a league season is over we’ll all go out to eat somewhere together to celebrate. Sometimes we’ll play in weekend tournaments together, too. This year we’re also going to participate in the Corporate Challenge together so we’re really excited about that!

What advice do you have for people thinking about joining a league?

Just try it! You’ll find out that it’s so much fun – and a great way to stay in shape and gain a new sports skill. And, no matter what your skill level is, you’ll have a great time at Volleyball Beach – and it’s amazing to see how much and how quickly you improve the more you play!


Thank you again to the Avila Faculty team for meeting with us and telling us about their experience playing at Volleyball Beach. If you’re interested in joining a league, what are you waiting for, you can get all the details about signing up for next season on our League Sign-Up Page!
