Volleyball in New York City

Beach, Indoor, Outdoor, Leagues, Teams

Volleyball in New York City is a strong and thriving community filled with beginners and pros of all kinds. From April through November, there is a huge beach scene in Tribeca right next to mini Golf, and all year round, there is organized league play, free volleyball programs in NYC, classes, clinics, drills, free play and more at various indoor gyms around the city.

Beach Volleyball in New York City

There is nothing like a day of beach volleyball in Tribeca. Spend all day with your feet in the sand, on the water, with views of the World Trade Center and a great group of people.

There are several ways to play Beach Volleyball in Tribeca and indoor volleyball all year round.

NYC Social – If you are new to NYC or to volleyball, sign up for NYC Social, a great multi-sport organizer all around NYC. They also offer kickball, soccer, football, water polo, bowling, indoor volleyball and about a dozen other sports and activities. You can easily sign up as a free agent and they will match you with a team. That’s how I started, and I’ve now played with the same team for over six years. League play is usually Wed nights, 6-11pm. Site: nycsocial.com

Big City Volleyball – slightly more competitive than NYC Social, and requires a full team sign up (no free agents). Big City specializes in Volleyball, the owner, David, is great and they offer all year round leagues, drills, clinics, tournaments and much more. Beach league play is usually Tues nights, 6-11pm. Site: bigcityvolleyball.com

FREE Community Volleyball – from May through Sept (sometimes later), Manhattan Youth, a downtown non-profit supporting local kids activities, offers free Adult community volleyball every Saturday 11am-3pm as one of their free volleyball programs in NYC. You can either register online or just show up (and should donate $5 to their organization) and come join us to play. 11am sharp is usually the best time as the courts get pretty crowded after noon. I’m usually there…so don’t be shy and please come say hi to Melissa!

Kids Volleyball in New York City – During the beach season, on Friday nights, Pier 25 invites kids grades 6 through 12 to sign up for Beach Volleyball instruction and games.

Reserve Your Court – outside of league play times (Tues/Wed nights), the courts are available for private rentals so you can play 1 on 1, have a party, 2 on 2 or whatever your heart desires. Slots open only 6-7 days in advance and must be reserved and paid for online. The courts generally run about $60 per hour.

There are also dozens of volleyball in New York City Meet Up groups, which will often reserve the courts over the weekends and people sign up by level.
