Embracing our Friday afternoon at KB’s Noosa whilst playing beach volleyball, listening to music, hanging with friends and drinking bevies!
Summertime is well and truly on its way in Noosa, and what better way to celebrate this beautiful weather and end of the week than hanging with friends and playing beach volleyball!
Nestled in the heart of Noosa’s vibrant beach culture is Koala Bar, a haven for beach volleyball enthusiasts. Here, a group of Lexis Noosa students came together and embraced the sun (and rain), sand, and sport, forging friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.
We began the afternoon playing some friendly beach volleyball without rules. Students warmed up and got themselves familiar with the game by trying to keep the ball off the ground, no matter how many hits or people it took. Once we started to get the hang of it, we split into teams of 6 and started to play a little more competitively.
The object of volleyball is to hit the volleyball over the net (by only using your hands) running through the centre of the court whilst trying to get it to bounce in your opponent’s half. The opposing team has to try and prevent the ball from bouncing before returning the ball. Games are played out in best of 3 or 5 sets and the team with most sets at the end of the game wins. Instead, we played to 15 points and the first team that got there, got to stay on the court to compete against the next team.
- Only 6 players on the floor at any given time – Usually 3 in the front row and 3 in the back row.
- Serve the ball over the net.
- Allow 3 hits before the ball must go over the net.
- Keeping the ball in bounds.
- No player can touch the ball twice in a row.
- Points are made when the ball hits the opponent side of the floor.
- All players must rotate positions after each point.
In typical Queensland style, a heavy rain cloud rolled in and unleashed its downpour on us. However, this didn’t put a damper on our mood. Instead, some students embraced the refreshing change in weather and carried on playing volleyball, even in the rain.
To beat the heat and satisfy their thirst during the volleyball matches, the students indulged in some refreshing cold beverages. Others simply relished the opportunity to socialize with friends, engaging in lively conversations while watching the matches. It served as a wonderful way to cap off the week and kickstart the weekend on a high note!
