2014 Summer Spike volleyball tournament was a great day in the sun in Buck Park.
Eight teams turned out for the play including 30 players.
The teams and spectators enjoyed watching three grass courts of games.
Many thanks to Hank Date for organizing the event and bring in players from as far as Olympia.
Hope to see even more teams next summer and that local players join us in the park through Mid Oct. for Sunday and Wednesday games.
