How do you spell FUN? In the South Bay in California we spell it like this:
Last week, we had a Fantastic experience—we learned to fight with padded weapons called Combative Wushu Weapons. It was a fantastic way for students to learn realistic sword combat safely and without risk of injury. A weapons expert taught our members traditional weapon striking and defensive techniques, and once we learned the basics our members had the opportunity to spar with fellow students and even the instructors! Afterwards, the class was divided into evenly-matched teams for exciting session of sword fighting matches and games like capture-the-flag and defend-the-general.
We had more fantastic experiences at our weekly volleyball game. As usual, more than 20 members came out to either join in on the action or just kick back with a cool drink and watch. To round out our trifecta of action packed fantastic experiences we spent an evening smashing shuttlecocks back and forth as we tried our hands at badminton. It was the first time many of us had played the game, and we all managed to have a wild and action packed time despite the sophisticated image the game has—showing that anything can be exciting when you have our great members around you.
U stands for the unfettered creativity of our members as we descended upon an upscale ceramic lounge and let our creative juices flow. We created everything from a magnificent dragon to a paw-printed dog bowl as we mingled and cracked jokes.
And finally, N stands for the fact that there is NOTHING quite like hanging out with other Events & Adventures members. At our last members meeting, we had a chance to share future event ideas, got to know the names of new members, play darts and board games. It was a great opportunity to just kick back and swap stories with a great group of people. At Events & Adventures’ South Bay club, every day is all about the FUN!
If you missed our 4th of July bash in Houston this year you missed a good one! In true American fashion we enjoyed hot dogs off the grill, Budweiser, Volleyball and a slip n’ slide in the backyard and tons of fun on the patio. When adults get the entire day off of work you know it’s time to party! We started at noon with volleyball and some water balloon fights and capped the day off watching the amazing fireworks show. The day flew by too fast but we’ve got some amazing pictures to remember the good times thanks to Ray! Members can check out the E&A calendar to see all the great ones they’re in! Can’t wait to do it again next year!
Volleyball is a staple every week, and every week I go, I am reminded of why I love this event. Volleyball is not just a group of people playing… It’s not even members anymore, it’s a family. The Volleyball Crew has become such an intricate part of E&A. Each week you see eachother, and play together, it makes it easy to become friends and get to know each other really well. Most of the best friends I have made in the club are from volleyball! So many relationships have been formed with volleyball being the reason. We have even had a few weddings that developed from our volleyball events! The bond that has been created over the years has really made this event was it is today. Lot’s of people, lots of fun, and lots of love. It’s true… I love my volleyball family.
Our favorite volleyball spot has added new nets & lights so we can enjoy outdoor volleyball action every Tuesday night for the rest of the year! The heat has finally broken so even if you don’t love volleyball you will love relaxing on the patio with a cool drink and good friends. Happy Hour is all day and you can watch your favorite channels on the new flat screen TV’s outside!

Here at Events & Adventures Phoenix we play volleyball once a week. You’ll even find us playing in the dead of summer when it’s well over a 100 degrees outside. It happens to be one of our most popular events for a variety of reasons and I’ll tell you why.
Regardless of ability or skill level, we will cheer you on! You could miss every serve, bump or hit, or you might set it perfectly and spike it regularly… we will still cheer you on! Volleyball is one of the easiest events to meet new people every week, and although we have a pretty solid foundation of regulars that enjoy this event, we love having new people sign up and we like it even more when they become regulars themselves! There’s enough down-time to meet and converse with other members, but it’s competitive enough that you won’t feel like you’re wasting your time tossing a ball back and forth! There’s usually (but not always) an after event, which is always popular! Grabbing a nice cold drink usually does the trick and discussing upcoming events is always a hot topic!
If you’re new to Events & Adventures here in Phoenix, now is the time to come on out and enjoy a game of Volleyball! It’s still light out in the evenings, the weather is perfect and the people are great!
