Saturday, 24 January 2015 – "Pick Your Partner Showdown" with Carnival divisions. That's right you get to pick, no willie nillie cards here, you are responsible. Don't have a partner? (Chuckle Chuckle) Peter and Thomas will pair you up (but you are still responsible).
There will be free pick-up games following the completion of pool-play matches around 2:00pm. Let's enjoy this mild weather while we can!
(A more complete description of tournament formats can be found here.)
Arrive at 11:30am or so to allow us to get a head count (call ahead if need be); play will begin at noon assuming you ALL get there no later than 11:50am so we can get an accurate count! $5 suggested donation. At the conclusion of the tournament nets will be open for free play, all skill levels welcome.
Note: Mid-City Youth Volleyball (MCYV) League plays from 9:30 to 11:30. Please leave all adult beverages in your car until all youth participants have left the field. This is not a request. Thank You for your cooperation. MCVG is offering Adult Clinics 17, 24 and 31 January. Cost is $10 per person per day. Start time is set for 10:15 to end at 11:30 ish.

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.
Mid-City Youth Volleyball, MCVG's sister organization, offers the following activities:
- Junior League for youths 10-17
- Mini-Volleyball, ages 6-9ish
