Is playing volleyball for money a bad thing?

Some inspirational volleyball quotes to live by

Posted in Others, Reflections

It was raining hard last Wednesday and I got stuck inside a university campus. I was trying to reserve a court for Team Spikeithard’s volleyball training / try-outs for this Saturday.
