Frequently Asked Questions

 

·   Where do the Luau events take place?

      Fri/Sat Grass: The Saturday events take place at Sydney Marovitz Golf Course, located just east of Lake Shore Drive between Waveland and Montrose. More location info + parking map coming soon!

    Sun Sand: The Sunday sand events take place at North Avenue Beach, located at 1600 N Lake Shore Drive in Chicago. The blue boathouse is a great landmark. The event will be just south of that on Rows B through K and the Special Event area.

 

·   Beer is included with all Saturday tournament & spectator registration. What are the details?

       We are proud to have Michelob Ultra as a sponsor for The Luau Grass Championships on Saturday 9/11! Each year we go through over 100 kegs! We will also be serving Michelob Ultra and Bud LIght family products including Seltzers for those non-beer drinkers out there! The event is all-you-can-drink from 11 AM until 5 PM (21 & over). No outside alcohol is permitted per Park District rules. 

 

·   Is food available on site? Can I bring a cooler with food?

       Players are welcome to bring coolers with food, non-alcoholic drinks, etc. Additionally we are offering two fantastic food options on site. Taquero Fusion will have their truck on site serving up a great menu at a reasonable price. At Beach Slap, the tacos and nachos were a huge hit! Cravings Red Hot food truck will also be on site grilling up all your favorite picnic foods. Both will have non-alcoholic drinks available for purchase. Grills and outside alcohol are not permitted on park district property!

 

·   Where can I park for the Grass Championships on Saturday?

       Coming Soon!

 

·   Where can I park for the Beach events on Sunday?

       Parking is very dependent on what time you get to the beach. If you arrive early, you can park in the pay lot closest to Castaways right at North Ave & Lake Shore Dr. This lot fills up extremely quickly. There is also a pay lot on Cannon just north of North Avenue. The Lincoln Park Zoo lot is accessible off Fullerton & has parking that usually doesn't fill up until after 12 PM. If you want to try to find free street parking, look on Cannon, Stockton and Lincoln Park West between Fullerton & Diversey & plan for a hike. 

 

·   What should I bring? Is there anything I can't bring to the events?

       Players are encouraged to bring sunscreen, snacks, volleyballs & other volleyball-related gear. Canopies & tents are allowed (except in designated "no canopy" zones), but please be sure to stake/secure your tent into the ground. You can bring coolers with food & drinks, but no outside alcohol is permitted. Water is complementary & will be available on site. Dogs, weapons, outside alcohol, illegal drugs, grumpy people, grills & any set-ups larger than 10x10 are not allowed. 

 

·   How does Check In work for the Saturday Grass tournament? Can I get check in on Friday to get it out of the way?

       As you can imagine, getting 400+ teams checked in prior to the tournament starting on Saturday morning is a difficult task. It is essential that we have all teams checked in prior to your tournament start time so that we can ensure pool play starts on time and that the tournament runs smoothly. We only need captains to check in for their entire team. At check in, captains will receive a park map and an entry ticket for each paid person on his/her team. Everyone must bring that entry ticket along with their ID to enter the course on Saturday. You can check in for the Saturday grass tournament in TWO PLACES: 1) ON FRIDAY at THE GOLF COURSE between 4 PM & 7 PM. 2) ON SATURDAY at THE GOLF COURSE between 6:30 AM & your Tournament Start Time - 8 AM for 3's, 9 AM for 4's/6's, 10 AM for Master’s, 11 AM for Field Day, 12 PM for Cornhole. 

 

·   How does my tournament work? What time do I start? What should I expect?

       All tournaments will use a pool play format with the top teams advancing to the Championship Bracket. For the grass events only, the bottom teams advance to the Bud Light Beer Bracket. For sand events, there is no Beer Bracket. Times are as follows:

Friday Volleyball - 12 AM start time. Pool play ends around 3:30 PM. Playoffs end by 6 PM.

Saturday Volleyball Triples - 8 AM start time. Pool play ends around 1:30 PM. Playoffs end by 6 PM.

Saturday Volleyball Quads/Sixes - 9 AM start time. Pool play ends around 1:30 PM. Playoffs end by 5 PM.

Saturday Volleyball Master’s - 10 AM start time. Pool play ends around 1:30 PM. Playoffs end by 4 PM.

Saturday Cornhole - 12 PM start time. Pool play ends around 2 PM. Playoffs end by 3 PM.

Sunday Volleyball - 9 AM start time. Pool play ends around 1:30. Playoffs end by 4:30 PM

***Check in opens an hour before your tournament is scheduled to start. No walk up tournament registration will be permitted.

 

·   Can my friends & family come watch? How much does it cost?

       Spectators over the age of 21 must purchase a ticket to enter for Saturday. Tickets cost $20 ahead of time online or can be purchased on site. Entry includes all-you-can-drink Bud Light as well access to our vendors and the party! Spectators under the age of 21 will are able to enter at no cost, but they will be given a different wristband. All spectators should enter the event at the main entrance off California just north of Irving Park. There is no cost for spectators on Sunday at the beach tournament. 

 

·  Will there be a photographer on site taking pictures?

    Yes we have several photographers to take pictures of all tournament teams and at the party. We'll post a huge album on Facebook the week after the event, so you can tag yourself and your friends!

 

·   Who is sponsoring the event?

    Sponsor info coming soon!

 

·  Are there opportunities for me to help out with the event and still play in the tournament?

    We are always looking for people to add to our Luau Staff, especially for net set up on Friday during the day. If you are looking to help before & after you play on Saturday, we might be able to put you to work doing that as well. Contact jeff@playerssports.net for more information.

 

·  Is there a Post Party?

    Post Party info coming soon!

 

·  How can I share my Luau experience during and after the event?

    Be sure to RSVP to the Luau Facebook event page to let your friends know you are going! Use the hashtags #luau and tag us @PlayersChicago when you post on Twitter & Instagram. Be sure to tag yourself & your friends in the event photos. Most importantly, tell your friends what a great time you had at the Luau this year & bring them back with you next year!

Played many different sports with them from soccer, dodgeball, volleyball, bowling, flag football, and some of their social events. Great opportunity to play many sports at various levels. It is a friendly group that keeps you coming back to win the elusive champions fleece.



Stephen S.   

Previously just played in one of their softball leagues on Wednesday nights and I must say I had a great experience. League was organized, umpires were professional, and the staff answered all questions I needed and made team registration easy. I highly recommend their leagues!



Xavier A.    

Iโ€™ve been participating in Players volleyball tournaments for close to 6 years now and they never disappoint. They have so many leagues and tournament dates for multiple sports that I canโ€™t wait for them to post dates so I can fill up my calendar! Lots of friendly and helpful staff and their events are a great setting to meet new people!



Liz S.   

These guys run great events and leagues! They have leagues all over the city of every different level of competition. Totally recommend them!



Niko K.   

Fantastic Social Event Platform. Players Sports is great at connecting with ALL levels of players in the Chicagoland.
