Sixth Annual Bayou Boogaloo Bicycle Pub Crawl will take place Saturday, May 17. This is a morning ride to get primed for the Boogaloo, and it is a fundraiser for our volleyball organization (voluntary donations). You can view the itinerary here which, for out-of-town guests, contains information about bike rentals less than a quarter mile from our starting location. To get a head count for the event so business owners know how many bartenders to have on hand, please register here. Be sure to print out and sign the liability waiver and bring it with you to the ride. As always, the pub crawl this year should be a blast!
Saturday, 26 April 2014, "Pick Your Partner Showdown" Speed Tournament.
(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 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.
Tuesday Eve Volleyball:
Every Tuesday evening, as long as we have daylight, we play at our usual location along Bayou St John 5:00pmish, and we'll play 'til dark, then we will retire to a local establishment for libations. Doubles and Quad tournaments are possible (at a $5 suggested donation) but there will always be nets for free play. You know you need the practice, come out and play.

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
