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. Click 'contact us' to request to be put on the MBVL mailing list to receive the latest league information as it becomes available.

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 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. Let serves are allowed, open hand dinks are not allowed, over hand sets are not allowed, and open hand passes are allowed (per FIVB rules) & should be called the same as hand sets. Hand sets and other rules infractions are self-called or called by a teammate and should be based on the skill level of the player. Last weekend of each month is "Ladies Night" where at least one net is set to women's height and reverse co-ed rules are used.

The Mac Beach Open is a series of charity tournaments benefiting Camp Twin Lakes (camptwinlakes.org). Click here for all information on the Mac Beach Open.
