About Friday Night Open Play

Fort Wayne's First True Sports Bar is finally here on Friday Nights! 7:30 pm - Midnight every Friday night, come and play hardcourt volleyball, beach volleyball, futsal, foot-volley, ping pong, air hockey, or foosball, all while enjoying games on the 8 TVs and big screens throughout the building and an ice-cold beverage at one of Empowered 2 bars, Sideline Lounge & Bob's Tiki Bar! Grab your friends from work, church, college, etc., and come out and actually participate in your favorite sport, instead of just watching, while you drink a cold beverage and catch up!

Drink specials every weekend, and only $5 to get in!
Family-friendly, but kids under 16 years old need supervision.

Try to play and create teams that play courts that match your level.

  • COURT 1 - A/B Level - Competitive Play
  • COURT 2 - B Level - Competitive Play
  • COURT 3 - B/C Level
  • COURT 4 - C/D Level



  • Ask around and find a team (6-8 players)
  • Assign a Team Captain
  • Assess your team's ability and write your name on ONE COURT whiteboard
  • Erase your team from the board before playing
  • 2 min Max for on-court warm-up
  • The whole team needs to be ready to jump on the court when the gameplay is finished



  • Games to 25 win by 2 (change to 15 if the courts are overcrowded)
  • FIRST MATCH of the night: Winning team stays
  • REST OF MATCHES: Stay for 2 matches then you are off
  • If your team is getting smoked move down a court



  • DO NOT GO UNDER THE NET OR LAND ACROSS THE MIDDLE LINE. Many serious injuries have occurred from this. You will be asked to stop playing if it continues.
