Last year, when UH was looking for a place for its games and practice courts, the city offered an under utilized venue, the home of the old Kodak Hula show.
"We saw this as an opportunity for us to create a venue for volleyball to occur,” said deputy director of Enterprise Services Randy Leong.
The area is part of the Waikiki Shell facility.
The underutilized 2200 seat venue sits empty with only about a half a dozen bookings or more a year.
"If there are interested parties out there to partner with the city to fund volley ball on the Kodak hula show area then, great we will listen to them,” Leong said.
The university has already begun construction the new Ching Athletics Center at the Manoa campus which includes an 800 seat venue with volleyball practice courts.
But if the sport grows like some predict, Leong would like to believe the volleyball idea at the park is still very much in play.
At the time the city and UH were talking it was estimated it could take from $300,000 to $500,000 to convert the Hula show venue to accommodate volleyball.
It was something that neither side could afford.
But if national or international tournaments are in Hawaii's future, it is likely a big name sponsor would have to be a part of it.
