Hi,

Iam looking for a beach volleyball group (not duplay) who plays every weekend.

I used to play beach volleyball regularly in Singapore and wondering if there are groups who bring their own nets and setup the court on the beach and play? I do have my own net and court and will be bringing it up here in a month or two from singapore.

Let me know if there is a existing group or else its time to make our own group if we have enough people to start with.

I still dont have local number, just a newbie in dubai (5 days old) :p

cheers

On JBR Beach next to Hilton (opp. ihop and the paid car park), there's some volleyball always being played during the weekends. I think it's a show up and play type thing, I am not sure tho, but most of the time the level of play is beginner, atleast from when i have seen them play.

Kite beach weekends are filled with vball games, some skilled players over there.

Try out Duplays, you dont need to pay upfront, you should check into the Tuesday night games starting next week at Barasti, it gets pretty intense sometimes.

Kite beach is North of Burj al Arab.

If it was yesterday afternoon, try looking up....
I counted 63 kites in the air at one point.

Can't miss it!

If you travel along Jumeira Reach Road, you will find Kite Beach further past Burj Al Arab, past Sunset Beach. One landmark is a building called Saga World, turn down there and head to the beach and you will come across the volleyball courts and gym area.

For clarity - this is if you are heading North....

Ok found the kite beach and joined some russian guys who were playing 2x2. After two games a group of arabic speaking blokes came and a little fight broke out between russians n the other guys. If thats the situation for public courts here then I will be glad when my own net will arrive in a month.

Time to look for other areas than kite beach

Oh you so wouldn't want me on your team hahaha! I'm the proverbial "butterfingers" (British term meaning I can't catch for toffee - another Brit saying hahaha). Anyways, you never know, reviving the thread may result in other people being interested...:fingerscrossed:
