Adult volleyball returns to CPN this summer
By Tracy Dudley
Back by request, South Metro Volleyball (SMVB) will again offer its adult women’s grass volleyball league this summer here in Castle Pines North (CPN). SMVB is a small, locally-owned adult sports organization that hosts numerous adult volleyball events at various venues throughout the year.
However, come summertime, there is a strong demand for women’s grass doubles among female volleyball players in Castle Rock, Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree, and other surrounding areas.
“We’ve used CPN the past few years because of its central location between many of the areas we serve. Traditionally, we hold our summer leagues and tournaments at Coyote Ridge Park, but this year we are moving things over to The Retreat Park – where the wind is not as intrusive,” said Tracy Dudley, founder of SMVB and CPN resident.
SMVB started nearly 10 years ago to serve a growing niche of adult competitive volleyball players hailing from the south Denver Metro area. Historically, players in this part of town had to drive an hour or more to find suitable adult volleyball leagues and tournaments.
“I love to play in SMVB leagues because they are very well organized. They listen to our feedback, and they really care about what we think as players. SMVB actually runs leagues and tournaments just for us to play in, as our options would be so few without them,” said Sheree Brock, a player who routinely drives up from Monument to play in SMVB events.
Because of the strong focus on players’ needs, SMVB events are well-known and popular within the adult volleyball community in Colorado. To learn more about SMVB, upcoming events, and other adult volleyball information, visit www.coloradovolleyballnetwork.com.
