Re: Lausanne Beach Volleyball

Hi all...am new to the area--working at UNIL for the summer--and am looking to see if anyone is playing pickup volleyball in Lausanne either in the evenings or weekends. I'm interested in playing doubles with other folks with some experience--any takers?

Re: Lausanne Beach Volleyball

Ok..Guys
Given the number of inquiries...I think we should kick start another season of beach volleyball. People from my institute already have started playing. We had our first game last week. If you could email me about your preferred day and time , we can start organizing regular games or even combine with people from my institute. Ideally I would prefer evenings around 7 pm.
let me know

Re: Lausanne Beach Volleyball

Hi all: I could make most any night around 6:30 or 7. In fact, if there's a quorum for a couple nights a week, I'd be game for that, too. Do people usually play in Vidy, or are their courts on campus that are used? I'm really looking forward to getting back out in the sand.

Re: Lausanne Beach Volleyball

Helloes!

For the dates, I'd recommend you use Doodle, rlehal

That way, we could initially set up which is the most appropriate day and time by simple, no-user-intervention, plain democratic and transparent vote.

http://doodle.ch

Just my opinion, it will also avoid head-bashing organizational things.

Re: Lausanne Beach Volleyball

Hi all,

Looks like tomorrow will finally be a beautiful day. I'm proposing a pickup game at Vidy tomorrow (Monday), perhaps followed by beer. I'll be at the courts at 6, and hopefully someone will show--if we're only two, we can at least challenge the courts, and if we're four, we can play on our own.

I should be easy to find; I appear to be the only person in Switzerland playing with a Wilson AVP ball. I'll probably just warm up my arm and serve a bit and hope a couple of folks at make it.

Guess I missed you - just went down, got there at 6:50. Three courts of all guys, one of all girls, no-one speaking English. Sorry for being so late, but it's rare that I even leave work before 6:30. I hope that there were a few people, and next time I can be organised enough to let you know in advance that I am coming, late or not.

I'm in for the next one, provided there is one!

Re: Lausanne Beach Volleyball

If I may make a small suggestion, it might be a good idea to use the EF calendar to organise beach volleyball events in the future. It makes it a bit easier to keep track of RSVPs, and at any rate it's usually better to announce upcoming games as a separate thread as opposed to tacking them onto the end of this one. Of course I'd also be happy to send out an advance notice of any upcoming beach volley games to the Lausanne contact list if anyone asked me to.

Cheers,

Heather

Re: Lausanne Beach Volleyball

Oh... just realised that this post is quite old. Anyone interested in playing this weekend? don't have a ball but dont mind going and buying one if noone else has one either.
One question though, do you have to book the court or is it just on a 'first come first serve' basis.

Re: Lausanne Beach Volleyball

I am always up to play. Pick a spot and post it.... there are also courts inside Belle Rive plage. On good days, however, you will have to be prepared to challenge the teams in play (doubles)

thank god for that

yeah.. will be going to look for a ball today. Not too sure where to look but I'm guessing the Coop Hypermarche will have one.

I also invited a few friends so that should be another 2 or 3 people so i'm sure we'll have enough for a good game

Re: Lausanne Beach Volleyball

great!!!...i had a look at the courts today...went a little late so no one was playing...but the one that i had mentioned behind bellerive plage does not seem to be free for all....i suppose it would be better we play at the other court near the lake...beach volley court ..its the one (the white rectangle patch) to the left of the main track field..so its reachable through maladiere round-about

swissaholic,guragu, yann PM me your nos. so that we can contact each other if required...so i guess 5pm tomm. is ok with everyone

ciao,
kunal
