Playing volleyball, like catching a bus, involves a sprint, a pass, and a giant net. Snag seats to a match with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $7, you get two general-admission tickets to see the University of the Pacific women's volleyball team battle Duke at the Alex G. Spanos Center on Thursday, September 1, at 5 p.m. (a $14 value). Kids age 12 and younger receive free admission.
The University of the Pacific Tigers—an NCAA Division I women’s volleyball team—pounce upon opponents with sky-high vertical jumps and powerful spikes. At its first home match of the season, the team faces East Coast rivals the Duke Blue Devils, hoping to add an early win to its record. Groupon holders will witness spinning serves and more sets than a test on Venn diagrams from their general-admission seats behind the student section. This season, outside hitter Samantha Misa returns to lead the team in her senior year, and Jennifer Sanders—a member of the Big West Conference’s 2010 All-Freshman Team—reprises her role as blocker and team actuary, making today’s deal an ideal outing for pintsize sports fans.
