Saturday, 15 March 2014, Battle of Venus & Mars "Speed" Tournament.
The tournament will be a single gender "speed" tournament meaning that the net will be at women's height for women and men's height for men (did I really have to say that?). Arrive by 11:30am if possible to allow us to get a head count; play will begin at noon.Note: Mid-City Youth Volleyball (MCYV) League runs from 9:30 to 11:30. Please leave all adult beverages in your vehicle until youth league participants have departed. This is not a request.
Location: MCVG plays on the grassy banks at the foot of Bayou St John, across the street from the Mid-City post office, Bayou Bicycles, Fetch Mid-City and Armstrong Electric Supply, in sight of the American Can Company and within easy walking distance of Parkway Bakery and Tavern. That would be on Jefferson Davis Parkway at the intersection of Toulouse, for those of you that need to use GPS to find us.

Next Tuesday Evening March 18, 2014, we will try again.
Nets will be set-up at our usual location along Bayou St John around 5:00pm, and we'll play 'til dark.

The Mid-City Volleyball Group (MCVG) is a collection of people from across the city who are passionate about playing and promoting outdoor volleyball. We regularly set up portable courts along Bayou St John across from the Mid-City post office for clinics, tournaments and pick-up games. We are equal-opportunity fun-seekers who wish to share our love of the game, so we invite players of all skill levels to join us. Our ultimate goal is to build and operate a modest sand volleyball venue in Mid-City that will offer beginning and advanced level clinics, tournaments and league play.
MCVG currently offers the following activities:
- Saturday noon “speed” tournament for adults or advanced juniors; $5.00/player (See above for start time).
- Saturday afternoon pick-up volleyball for all skill levels following the weekly "speed" tournament; free.
- Tuesday night volleyball (Sorry, no more daylight, see you Spring 2014).
Mid-City Youth Volleyball, MCVG's sister organization, offers the following activities:
- Junior League for youths 10-17
- Mini-Volleyball, ages 6-9ish
