The new Volleyball P.E.I. senior men’s league gives people a chance to play again in a casual but still competitive environment.

Isaac Kirkland is a first-year business student at UPEI, having played volleyball throughout Stonepark and Charlottetown Rural.

He is helping to coach for a while but, the men’s league gives him a chance to play again, says Kirkland.

“It’s nice to be able to play in a casual yet competitive environment.”

The league is made up of four teams that play each other in a round-robin style every Sunday from 7-9 p.m.

Games go to 25 and the league is open to high school students and any older than that. No experience is required.

With a busy schedule, it’s nice to be able have a time to relax and play some volleyball, says Kirkland.

The age is mixed but the skill level is very equal resulting in some very exciting rallies and matches.

“At times it feels like I’m back in high school competing for the provincial championship.”

The first week there were only enough people for four teams but going into the second week that has been increased to five teams.

The league runs from Oct. 2 to Dec. 19 and if enough people are interested it will resume after Christmas.

Anyone interested in playing should email for information.
