Grass volleyball is open to all players in and outside the Club all summer long. We encourage younger athletes to come out and play as well… 12s on up. Playing grass volleyball, especially doubles is one of the best ways to improve your overall game. And it's fun! In addition to Open Grass Play, we offer Grass Doubles Tournaments throughout the summer. See this summer's schedule below. For further questions on our offerings please contact our Outdoor Director Joe Uydess at firstname.lastname@example.org or 314-956-3607.
We encourage everyone to bring a partner to Open Grass Play so you do not have to sit around and wait for a partner to become available.
We will begin grass volleyball play at Fenton Park's Practice Field #1 (right next to the fenced baseball fields) starting at 12:00 p.m. Play will continue until everyone has had enough. Typically, we are there at least 3 to 4 hours.
This is FREE of charge for all players.

Since outdoor volleyball is weather dependent, please make sure you visit the web site before heading out for the afternoon. Cancellations will be posted on our Website, FaceBook page, and on Twitter in cases of inclement weather.
When the weather is nice and hot, please be advised that when you are not playing that you should be sitting in the shade, drinking fluids, and staying cool. It is recommended that you wear hats to keep the sun off your head and make sure you use sunscreen.
Also, remember to eat a good breakfast at least an hour or two before play begins. It is always a good idea to bring and drink plenty of fluids , as well as, eating small snacks throughout the day. Good snacks to bring are pretzels, fruit, nuts, and light sandwiches. Most importantly, know and listen to your body. If you are feeling badly, stop play and let someone know.
Come on out…
Improve your game and have a great time!
