It’s that time of year again! Students are back on campus, and the men’s club volleyball players are back in the gym. With 13 returning players, we are starting off with a talented and experienced squad. Fortunately, we had 28 players show up to our first open gym, all of whom had previous playing experience and a good knowledge of volleyball. After two days of tryouts and some open gyms, we narrowed down our traveling squad to 19 players who will play on the traveling squad, bringing in 6 new talented players.
But now on to the good stuff: the dates for Pumpkin Smash and Turkey Smash have been set! Pumpkin Smash will be on Sunday, October 14th, and Turkey Smash will take place on the first weekend of December (Dec 1-2). This year we will have a new tournament director, Jon Wood, and if you have any questions, comments, and/or concerns, feel free to contact him by email, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Sign-ups for Turkey Smash will begin the day of Pumpkin Smash, so those at the tournament who already know they want to play in Turkey Smash will be able to sign up there.
We also will be having a few scrimmages this fall:
Sunday, October 7th: Alumni Scrimmage at Alumni Gym, time TBD.
Saturday, October 13th: Collegiate Tournament at UK
Thanks so much for your support of the UK Men’s Club Volleyball team, without you all there would be no club and for that we thank you.
