“Sky Volleyball Club would like to ask the City of Vernon, to be a partner. In principle, we’d ask for a similar deal to those already put in place with other Sports in Vernon,” the group asks in the proposal.
The club is currently the largest sports club in the city with almost 500 members.
The proposal will come before council on Monday.
