A few rules to point out for our events:
All of our events are held at Capt'n Bill's Backyard Gill and Volleyball Facility. The address for your GPS is 4240 Market Street, Wilmington, NC 28405. You will not find a nicer location anywhere in the United States. The tradition here comes with great food, a hard working and friendly staff, and some of the best volleyball players in the world have played in this great facility. We are lucky to have something like this in Wilmington!! Voted Number 1 place to play in NC by Volleyball Magazine!!
