Hello Parents & Athletes,
We wanted to provide an update regarding the future of our DOME Location (Bubble near U of C).
In June of 2018 our lease with the City expired. The City verbally agreed to us staying here for another 3 years and we have been on a month to month "overholding" lease since then. On Tuesday, October 29th, my daughter Milou (general manager of the Volleydome) and I met with some representatives from Calgary Parks and Rec who let us know that they value our service to the volleyball community and would like to see us stay, but the costs of doing so keep increasing and the long term plan for Foothills Park still includes a Field House and therefore does not include our business. Our "bubble" is getting a bit dated and there are some repairs and upgrades that we should be making, but with a lease term like ours it obviously doesn't make sense to invest in those improvements or to try to plan future programs. The Parks and Rec representatives said they would explore options for us to see if the City might possibly be able to offer us a new 3 year lease or longer, but in any case we just seem to be delaying the inevitable so we let them know that we will be looking at alternative exit strategies starting as early as July 2020.
Our new Volleydome GYM location (near CrossIron) has been getting steadily busier and we will certainly ask patrons to move as much as they are willing, and we will continue to provide volleyball opportunities to as many of you as possible. Obviously it will not be as central as our DOME Location (near UofC) for a lot of people and maybe it will never be as successful or popular as our DOME location has been. We will continue to look for alternatives in Calgary, but that has been a frustrating process for quite a few years now. There are a lot of factors that need to align to make a family owned, privately run facility like ours work in a City like Calgary and apparently our bubble start-up was a lucky shot when we started it back in 1994. To volleyball enthusiasts like us it seems as if everyone should be supporting a healthy life sport like ours, but that hasn't translated into any affordable real estate options and certainly none with a location like the DOME.
So, if anyone is interested in buying and moving a used bubble next summer or the summer after, then please let us know. If anyone knows of any weird buildings (high roofs and far spaced support posts) or cheap pieces of land in the City that we might move to then let us know because the clock is definitely ticking on the DOME and we don't want our volleyball community to be too shocked or disappointed when we are gone.
If you have questions or concerns, I can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 587-619-0595. You may also call Milou (General Manager) at 403-284-3663.
Thanks for supporting our business these many years.
