Volleyball is considered the “Nudist National Sport” and you will find it played at almost every one of the seven landed clubs in the Western Region. Some clubs play hard court, or traditional volleyball, while others enjoy water volleyball. Tennis and pickleball are also popular, with tournaments and pickup games almost every weekend. Some clubs have billiard tables, ping pong events, horseshoes, petanque, and other fun events. You don’t have to be an expert athlete in any of the sports, just bring along great enthusiasm and be prepared to make some memories with friends new and old.
These sports are played at club across the region on a daily and weekly basis. Throughout the year there is a terrific opportunity to have some inter-club competitions during our regional sports festivals, summer and fall, and convention. Teams, and individuals, from different clubs travel to various clubs and compete for bragging rights as well as great prizes.
In 2017 we initiated a 5K Naked Run Tour, where runners participated at four different clubs hosting these popular nudist runs. We are excited to expand the running series this year, and we hope that you join us on one of the stops.
There will be other inter-club competitions coming soon. Over time we hope to create an AANR-West League that can challenge other AANR regions across the country. Visit this web page often as we list the dates and locations of these events.

The last person will pass the cup over their head and empty the cup the bucket behind them then pass the cup forward so it can be refilled and the process repeated.

The second-place team members receive 2 points each. The members of the third-place team receive 1 point each.
Hula Hoop Passing Race:
There are two teams for this event. Each team will form a line and hold hands, the first person gripping the hula hoop with their free hand. At the word “Go” they must pass it over their body (without using their hand) to the next person in line and that person has to do the same, and so on down the line. This task has to be done without letting go of the person’s hands on either side. Once you have gotten to the last person, now it’s now time to do it again in reverse order. The winning team members will receive 3 points each. The opposing team members will receive 2 points each.
Two teams for this game. Players have to hold the “Pool Noodle” between their legs (no hands aloud) and run around the pool, passing it to the next teammate using just their legs.

The second-place team members receive 2 points each.

Once the game captain says “Go”, one team member can hold the inner tube in the pool while the paddling participant gets seated on the tube. The person on the inner tube must paddle the length of the pool until the tube touches the other edge. The participants must paddle themselves, no pushing off or assistance allowed. At that point, they will jump out of the tube and hold it for the next paddler to get seated take the tube back, remember – no help. This will continue until all team members have had a turn to paddle. The winning team, of course, is the one who accomplishes this task first. The members of the winning team receive 3 points each.

A member of each team will dive to the bottom of the pool and compete with the members of the opposing teams to grab as many bottles as they can in one breath. They then need to successfully bring the bottles to their designated team area of the pool deck and place them on the deck without help. When all the bottles have been placed on the deck the next team member can enter the pool and with one breath, dive and collect as many bottles as they can manage and this repeats for all member until all the bottles been retrieved.
