POCAHONTAS – The department of parks and recreation will, in mid-Spring, begin a water volleyball league for both men and women at the aquarium located at the Pocahontas Community Center.
Parks and Recreation Officer Mark Turner said during a city council meeting on February 11 he was in the initial planning stages of forming the league. He said the committee would hold monthly meetings from 5 p.m. at the center to work on getting more members to join.
“We will have schedules and hopefully, we will have four teams to compete in the league. Come the next city council meeting; I will have more rules for the park and recreation committee to review,” Turner said.
He said there would be league fees to help pay for officials and referees. However, the city council will fund the purchase of other equipment.
During the meeting, Councilman Wayne Broadway suggested that Turner look at gym equipment Gary Snow, the owner of a local gym, proposed to sell to the Pocahontas Aquarium.
Snow said he was ready to dispose of the gym equipment at a quarter the cost of new equipment.
