Our Schedule

You can always find our current scehdule in our booking system Digitalbooker at www.varaaheti.fi/hontsy . Choose your sport first and you’ll see the coming games. In normal circumstances, we’ll have the same weekly schedule for each season. 

Some general info about the games:

The sizes of the courts vary, also the number of players per team varies from court to court and according to the number of people attending.

By taking part in the activities, you accept Höntsys rules (link in Finnish). To sum up, the most important rules are: 1) Höntsy does not take insurance for you, you play at your own risk and we recommend an accident insurance; 2) when playing indoors, you must have proper shoes that do not damage the floor (”non marking” soles) and you must not use outdoor shoes; 3) respect other players, give everyone the possibility to actively take part in the game; 4) the instructor (Höntsys representative) has absolute authority and can even throw you out in an extreme case.

Please observe that 1) we guarantee a minimum number of players, usually six, at each and every one of our times – if not, you will be compensated (not applied outdoors when it rains), and 2) there is a maximum number of participants for each game, so that everyone gets to participate enough. There is a booking possibility – booking is not at all obligatory, though, so you can just show up. The games will be arranged every time, regardless of the amount of bookings.

Sports venues / addresses:

We have detailed descriptions of our sports venues (with addresses, map links and pictures!), as well as all other aspects of Höntsy on our web pages. Regrettably, most of this stuff is only in Finnish. If you have any questions whatsoever, you are very welcome to contact me at ilkka.virjo (at) hontsy.fi or 040 5803727.

Volleyball levels:

Note, these are the new levels from 21st Aug 2023. The level of the game means the minimum level you should be in order to attend. Higher level players are welcome in the lower level games, provided that you take the level into account. In particular, on levels 1-4 you should not spike as hard as you can, etc. 

1 = a beginner friendly relaxed game, you can join without having ever played volleyball before. If volleyball is a new hobby to you, start here! 

2 = Similar to 1, but without total beginners. 

3-4 = Game rolls in pass-set-attack-style. The players know the rules and how they are supposed to play in different places & they don’t have big trouble with basic techniques. 

5-6 = A rather advanced game with hard spikes and blocking. 

Note: From level 7-8, players need to be pre-approved. (If you are not in the group, you won’t see the games in varaaheti . You can still check the schedule at www.hontsy.fi/ohjelma). You can ask to join by sending an e-mail to ilkka.virjo@hontsy.fi . There is a separate pre-approval for levels 7-8 and 9-10. If you have played competitively, you can ask to join even before you come to Höntsy. Normally, we like to see you at the lower levels first. 

You can also ask us to evaluate your level here. 

7-8 = Good, sporty game where everybody participates in every aspect of the game. Players remember to cover the hitter, etc. Easy mistakes start to be a rarity. 

9 = Similar to 7-8 but we expect the players to be more sure, consistent and make less mistakes. 

10 = A level 9 game, but it’s played with a single setter so you should know how this works.
