Summer Volleyball at UMass Medical School
Every year around the end of April UMMS students, faculty & staff get together to kick off the beach volleyball season. The games take place on the two beach volleyball courts behind the old medical school building on the main campus. The winning team from the tournament is given an 38" x 12" trophy that weights 16.1 Lbs (7.3 Kg).
This year the games will start around the last week of April and there will be two tournaments - one in the Spring and one during the Summer. The games are usually played throughout the week, 5-8pm.
UMMS IT team
Last summer the IT department took part of the Summer tournament for the first time and we had a great time together. Even though it was our first time playing together and we were up against teams that have been playing for at least 3-4 years, we were able to qualify for the quarter-finals.
It was a great experience for all of us and this year we are going to take part in both tournaments.
