Beach volleyball leagues in Tempe and Scottsdale. Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri for intermediate and recreational players. Always top notch fun!
Operating as usual
NO TOURNAMENT TONIGHT FOR TEMPE REC THURSDAYS
Hi guys, Shawn here. Our apologies - Buttes management has been repairing sprinklers and plumbing for bathrooms all week, we were assured it would be done by tonight but they let us know a bout 15 minutes ago they are not done. Out of our control - but we apologize nonetheless.
The bracket you see here is for next Thursday Oct 22 as a result. Please enjoy your night and we'll see you next week.
***IF your team likes the groove and want to keep it going without a goofy off week, we can absolutely hit it again with the new season rebooting Oct 29.
Shawn (me) is going to take this week before tournament to give the Buttes some needed TLC - thorough cleaning of the restrooms, trimming of the out of control trees, repairing of the woefully inadequate ball net fencing, fixing the broken water spigot, raking again of the thorny branches and a deep tilling of the sand.
We had a robust 18 teams in this excellent league not too long ago, before Covid kind of hit it in the groin - so we know the market IS out there.
Will you do what you can to help us spread the word, recruit any volley-friends you think would enjoy joining you?
We are going to - we promise - market Tempe Thursdays HARD to new teams, to old teams who vaporized in March with Covid, to get this fun, fab league rocking again with 10, 12, 16, 18 teams.
Thank you everyone for your mojo and for your patience about tonight.
Bracket playoffs for tonight's She-Ra Reverse Coed League at Elks Island.
Thank you to all 9 teams for a fun, fabulous season!
Please get your registrations in fast for the new season reboot that will start in two weeks, Oct 27.
New teams have signed up - spots could dry up as we max out - don't miss out! https://www.funkvolley.com/tuesday-scottsdale-big-kahuna-intermediate-and-reverse-coed.html

The one and only Dave Kamena is going to not only be with us all weekend at Elks island with his Kamena Outdoor goods for sale before Rocky Point, Dave is actually playing Sunday with our guys in the Men's 2s Beach Kings tournament.
Come hang out with us at the Backyard Beach at Elks Island this weekend even if you're not playing in one of the three events, shop some stellar beach wear and pick up a new fav for your closet or drawers.
Dave's been a great part of Funk fall editions of Rocky Points for quite a few years now; here's an early chance to get some great threads on your ass, back or head.
Yes, we are playing league Labor Day night Sept 7.
Where you going anyway? It's Covid year.
And besides, who's not back from whatever their doing by Monday night? Is Tuesday a holiday? Is this Europe?
We're playing, ya Marys.
TEMPE THURSDAY REC TEAMS:
Very sorry to have to make this announcement; tonight’s planned first night must be cancelled at The Buttes.
The damage from recent monsoons is too great to remedy in time for games tonight.
Mostly it is the blanketing of the grass and the East court of close to 4500 sq feet of mesquite tree shrapnel, spiky twig fragments.
I picked up and raked as much as I could the last 40 minutes, but there’s still an hour of work here and I cannot stay.
We will put in the work needed to make your play area safe and comfortable and relaunch opening night next Thursday Sept 3.
Please spread the word to your teammates.
ATTENTION PLEASE, WEDNESDAY NIGHT ELKS ISLAND PLAYERS:
The schedule for both Recreational and Little Kahuna has been utterly gutted and changed; please review and re-calibrate.
Please DO NOT depend on a screen shot you may have taken (BTW - never advised, ever to screen shot the schedule) the first week.
Please re-consult the schedule - it has changed...for every single team.
**Explanation: a team took a valiant run at Little K Intermediate, found they were in a little over their head and out of their element, asked to make our fun Rec League their home. We agreed this was a wise move.
So Rec now has 14 teams strong (that...is awesome!),
little Kahuna is hanging in there with 4 teams this season.
Your first night's results and resulting standings and records are now posted as well.
Mahalo all for making Elks Island and Funk Beach your league home - see you next week for more fun!

We got started off the blocks with 12 teams last season for our VERY groovy and buzz-inducing Thursday night Little Kahuna Intermediate (Hands Fly Free) League in south Scottsdale at Elks Island Funk Beach.
Tonight we launch Season 2 of Thursdays with an almost full 16 teams (absolute max possible is 18 teams).
Kind of nice to have 16, as that means all teams play all nights - no byes - so kind of a perfect number.
Here's the schedule page for reference:
Mahalo, mahalo, mahalo to all 64 players making up this season's Fun.
See you tonight at your time slot:
either 6:15 / 7:20 / 8:25 / 9:30.

Little Kahuna Intermediate - Hands Fly Free - practice your hand setting skills with us THURSDAY nights in Scottsdale at Funk Beach Elks Island!
- Great, low beer and drink prices at the Elks Lodge bar.
Even better (40-50% discounts) when you become an Elk member.
- Deep (12-14 inches in the play area) beach sand, lovingly maintained. Never cruel, always soft - safe to dive, knee and roll in.
Elbows, toes, knees and shins confirm.
It's The Beach in the Backyard at Elks Island.
- Level is BB to B to C (a spectrum of team levels)
- Hand sets that stay on your team's side of the net are not called - you've got the freedom to take out those paws and try that hand setting you've wanted to practice.
- We had 12 teams this past season - we can take up to 18.
When we get to 16, we can break into Gold and Silver Little Kahuna divisions for even more tailored level competition.

In case you missed the company memo, it's hot outside here in Arizona in early July.
Interesting enough, we are in the eye of the hurricane for AZ summer - last week and this very week comprise the highest mean daily temperature averages of the year in your community.
F yea, let's party dude!
So the point - please keep your human bodies hydrated, adults. The brain and heart are 73% water. We always have our 10 gallon bright orange water cooler supplied with iced H2O if you've somehow forgotten to fill your Hydroflask with liquid.
If you ever feel faint or overheated, for Pete's sake please tap out - the game can manage without you. Use one of the two water hoses available to cool your body temp, seek refuge in the A/C'ed inner sanctum, etc.
You're playing at your own responsible risk of course, but we care about you, so gauge your own tolerance for heat and always play it safe, campers.
See you tonight and thank you all for your love of the game!
Looking to get some deep, soft sand between your toes?
12 inches worth in the play areas, cared for lovingly and tilled regularly?

Would love to work your team into the schedule.
We can. We can work your team IN. We can pro-rate your team fee accordingly.
Send us a message.
