Important Note:

The National Junior Olympic Water Polo Championships are playing at

Stanford University and local area pools during this same time so you should book

hotels as soon as possible. Given that Middlefield Ballpark is in the southern part of

● Walk and shop around the Stanford Mall

● Walk up and down University Avenue

● Walk around California Avenue (PA’s “2nd” downtown)

Places to eat

A reminder that all teams get a free lunch from our Snack Shack on Saturday.

There are many great dining options in the surrounding area along the spectrum of casual to formal. If you have not been to the area before, make time to walk down University Avenue to get a feel for Palo Alto’s main drag. Here are a few local favorites:
