Local Sports Taylorsville Spikeball Tournament!
Did you know that Utah has a spikeball league? Utah Roundnet is home of the largest competitive (yet friendly) Spikeball community in the world. This year Utah Roundnet has partnered with the American Spiker Leagues who have created leagues throughout the country, including 4 in Utah.
Roundnet is a rapidly growing sport you may have spotted on a beach somewhere, at your local Dick’s Sporting Goods, or even on Shark Tank or ESPN2. Roundnet has a rich history of growth since its invention in 1989, but enough of the facts. Let’s talk gameplay.
Roundnet is typically played with two teams of two. Play begins when one player hits the ball down onto the net to the other team. Just like volleyball, the receiving team is allowed three touches to bump, set, and spike the ball back onto the net. Each time the ball hits the net, it changes possession.
Eva is a small restaurant with big flavors, open late on both weekends and weekdays. When asked what kind of food Eva serves, we usually have to pause and think about it. “Comfort food”. “Delicious food”. “Slightly Mediterranean”. “Pizza and other stuff.” “New American eclectic”. To be honest, we’re not totally sure, we just care that it’s good — so forget about the labels and just check out our menu.
Eva is dedicated to and named after chef Charlie Perry’s great grandmother. Eva Coombs passed on her respect for quality ingredients, an emphasis on the nourishing benefits of food and most importantly, the shared pleasure of eating. Our family style dining promotes a communal sense of enjoyment, with the sharing of dishes highly encouraged. (It’s why we give you small plates!) We have an extensive and varied menu full of small dishes, not-so-small dishes, craft cocktails, a hand-picked wine list, and desserts that are made at Eva’s Bakery, our French-style boulangerie just down the street. (All of our bread is made there too!)
Eva Coombs was renowned for cooking with an abundance of both love and butter. Family and friends took any opportunity to stop by her home for nourishment and pleasure. Her great grandson, Charlie, was always by her side in the kitchen, and Eva’s passion for French cooking and respect for ingredients transferred to her young apprentice. Chef /Owner, Charlie Perry, opened Eva, the restaurant, and Eva’s Bakery Boulangerie in her honor.
Evas is a quaint restaurant, making a reservation is recommended.
