Hiya Paddy,

Yes, you're most welcome to bring your friends down on Saturday. There are a few regulars who are out-of-town this weekend due to the holiday so there will be ample opportunity for everyone to play. Let me know if you want my mobile number so you can find us and I will PM it to you.

We play at Tanjong beach, not Siloso beach. It's at the other end of Sentosa. Siloso beach tends to be more crowded hence we play there.

We should be playing on Monday, I'll have to confirm tomorrow that we will have enough players willing to come along.

See you at the beach!

Jeremy.

I like the subject NJB, it wasn't lost on me. And I didn't know "evilly" was really an adverb, I had to look it up. It is.

Like yourself I hadn't played volleyball in a long time. It's not too different playing on sand to indoors, possibly a little warmer and with the added advantage of being able to kick the ball if you can't get any hands to it in time. Don't let your lack of recent experience sway you in coming down. We are very social and have players of all abilities, ages and sizes (as well as nationalities). So come out soon.

As for your comment about starting a new thread with all the details in the title, yes, I was planning on doing that soon. I used to post every week, but I think I'll just leave a generic one for people to discover and comment on...

Good game everyone, I feel alive again!

Thanks Maria, for the tips on how to serve the ball -without hurting yourself! Loving it~

Surprisingly enough, no blue-black (s) on me this time! YAY!! Think my wrists and arms are "seasoned" XDXDXD

Jerm: Hope your pinkie is alright :D

Hi Chickan,

Yes, we're playing on Saturday - every Saturday (pretty much) in fact. Here's a generic post I made with details about location, etc:

http://www.singaporeexpats.com/forum/ftopic54388.html

And yes, you're welcome to join.

Beach volley isn't that much different to indoor volley - maybe more of a chance to get a tan (or conversely, sunburn) however. Technically beach volley is 2-a-side but we play anywhere from 3 to 6, depending on how many people are there at the time.

Let me know if you want my mobile number to contact me if you need to find us on the beach.

Jeremy.
