Volleyball at the ARC

Volleyball is played on Monday nights at the ARC and is suitable for beginners and people of all ages. Did you know….

  • Four teams have reached Victorian State Schools Championship which made each team in the top 8 school teams in Victoria.
  • Seven teams have made it to the state championships in the last 2 years.

Most play in the junior competition on Monday nights from 6pm-7pm. Our social adult competition runs from 7pm-8pm straight after the juniors.

Sessions are coached by Victorian State Coach, Colin Priest with 3 other qualified coaches.

DNC Joke of the Day

An elderly lady telephoned the hospital. She timidly asked “Is it possible to speak to someone who can tell me how a patient is doing?”

The operator said “I can.  What’s the name and room number?”

The lady in her weak voice said “Doreen Jacobs, Room 604.”

The operator replied “Let me place you on hold while I check with her nurse.”

After a few minutes the operator returned to the phone and said “Oh, I have good news.  Her nurse just told me that Doreen is doing very well.  Her blood pressure is fine, her blood work just came back as normal and her physician, Dr. Ross, has scheduled her to be discharged on Tuesday.”

The old lady said “Thank you. That’s wonderful!  I was so worried!  God bless you!”

The operator replied “You’re more than welcome.  Is Doreen your daughter?”

The grandmother said “No, I’m Doreen Jacobs in Room 604. No one tells me anything.”
