About Open Play

Gotham offers Open Plays at all levels of play to those who currently play in Gotham, have played previously, individuals who are new to Gotham, or are those simply looking for a casual volleyball experience. Open Plays offer a casual environment of friendly competition, with scored games but no standings.

Our Open Plays have firm eligibility guidelines for each level to help ensure court safety and maintain the level of play. Because we put the teams together for you, Open Plays are a great opportunity for people who just want to come by to play some volleyball with others in a relaxed environment. Teams are assigned randomly by the Gotham Leader running the event, with the aim of distributing skill sets as evenly as possible across all teams.

Open Play is primarily designed for individual registration and participation.  It is not a team-based program.  We try to assign Gotham teammates who want to play together to the same teams but cannot make any guarantees.  Gotham Friendship Tournaments are a much better format for those wishing to practice and participate together as a team.

Once a month, in lieu of regular Open Plays, we mix the levels up and hold “Scramble,” or mixed Open Plays, giving players who don’t normally play together a chance to mix, mingle, and volley. During the weeks that we have Mixed Open Plays, we are excited to introduce a new weeknight Advanced Level (Red) Open Play!
