Indoor volleyball began in the 1980’s at the Maplewood Salvation Army gymnasium. For the safety and protection of the players, one needed an invitation from a current player and a “password” was needed to enter the gym. This initial “league” became known as “Tuesday Night Volleyball” which was comprised of approximately 15-20 gay players that had the desire to play “gay volleyball”.
Through the years, the league grew with the number of players and teams. In 2009, Team Saint Louis took over management of “Tuesday Night Volleyball” which had been independently managed. The TSL Indoor Volleyball League hosts over 40 teams with 300+ players on Tuesday nights at St. Louis Community College - Forest Park.
The league consists of four divisions of play: power, advanced, intermediate and recreational. All divisions are 6-person teams that can consist of all male, all female or any combination of co-ed players.
