A popular volleyball league is casting its nets on the West Shore.

West Coast Recreation, which has been in the Victoria area since 1989, is serving up volleyball at the Juan de Fuca Recreation Centre.

The co-ed league currently has more than 200 players involved at Bullen Park in Esquimalt, said Manny Asistores, marketing and event co-ordinator for West Coast Rec sport and social club.

“We’re expanding to bring the Monday night vibe to the West Shore,” he said. “Our aim is to bring people together through an interest in sports,” he explained. “We keep people together through a genuine connection.”

The league runs on Thursdays at JDF on the grass infront of The Q Centre from about 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. There’s a beer garden available for players over 19 years of age.

Registration until the end of June is $285 for a four-member team, and $80 for single players.

“There’s still plenty of spots available,” Asistores noted
