Competition is heating up at Jordan Park Camp as 92 teams get their feet in the sand for the summer volleyball league.
The Jordan Park Volleyball League began June 2 and will run through August 8, with over 500 people streaming in and out of the camp Monday through Thursday for games. The league added a fourth night of games this year and a new middle division to allow for more evenly matched play on the court.
A weekly opportunity to invite coworkers and friends to, the league brings new people into fellowship and provides a fun way to meet more people. The unity of teams extends beyond the courts, too. Many teams grill out after their games and spend time sharpening their bump, set, spike skills outside their regular game nights.
"I pray that relationships within current community groups would grow and mature as people play together for one purpose and also that friends and coworkers would come and see what fellowship looks like outside of the workplace," said Amelia Gibson of the Jordan Park Volleyball staff.
Along with Gibson, other Jordan Park Volleyball staff members include Kaden Bronzynski, Adam Nordaker and Josh Smith.
Mark your calendars for the annual hog roast and tournament on Friday, August 8 to end the summer volleyball season.
