Melonball …

what the heck !?!


Years ago when I was the Intramural Sports Director at Rice University, I came upon this game and did a Sunday afternoon tournament.  The kids loved it and also the fact that they were next to their dorm room to run and get more cold beer  Ha Ha. In fact I went to a reunion event, not long ago and they were still talking about playing Melonball.

Melonball is a cross between four square and Volleyball with a few rule variations and is played on a tennis court using a four square ball. We will have teams based on how many show up…but five to a side is maximum.  The ball is served like four square or volleyball or you can even kick the ball over. Since the ball is large, if you hit the lines it is considered out. Maximum 3 hits to a side (must have a bounce in between) and a few more rules we will go over that day.


Bring:   Water, Gatorade, Sun screen, Sunglasses, Hat, Towel etc.   and maybe a change of clothes for dinner event afterward.

Free Parking… no money required other than for any personal drinks/items you bring.

Please also see the separate dinner event afterward at Cool Runnings Jamaican Bar and Grill – 3 miles away (sign up separately)


the Willow Water Hole Music Fest is also nearby this day from 12 - 8 pm. This is a free event that you could also do before Melonball or the dinner at Cool Runnings.
