Join us to watch a demo of 9 Man Volleyball with Coach Siu On Wong in Hart House Gym.


Largely undiscovered by the mainstream, the 9-Man game is a gritty, athletic, urban treasure traditionally played in parking lots and back alleys and it requires that 2/3 of the players are "100% Chinese". 9-Man tournaments grew in the 1930’s, at a time when anti-Chinese sentiment and laws forced restaurant workers and laundrymen to socialize exclusively amongst themselves. Today the game is a lasting connection to Chinatowns. Come to watch the game!
