When the weather warms up, McPherson Beach comes alive with volleyball action. Started in 2000, the McPherson Beach Volleyball League runs from early April to late October. The 'league' consists of open play on Sat or Sun starting at 1:00 and lasting about 4 to 5 hours. Play is typically in the BB range, B level players and higher are welcomed to join the fun. After play is over, and a dip in the pool on hot days, players head to a local spot for food and drink.

Mac Beach has two courts that are 27'X27' with professional quality nets and lines. Wilson AVP "Official Game Ball" volleyballs are used. We play 3's or 4's depending on the number of players (3's preferred). Teams play 2 games together regardless of winning or losing then rotate out. Games are rally scoring to 15, win by one if players are waiting to play, win by 2 if no one is waiting.
