    Gather a company?

    I need to translate a sentence into English, but I am not sure as to what word fits best here.
    If you want to play a game of volleyball, GATHER A COMPANY (find some friends won't do, I need something with "the company" if possible)

    Re: Gather a company?

    "Gather a company" could mean that, but it's certainly not a thing that comes to mind first. It's not what people say in such situations. Why do you want to use the word "company"?

    Re: Gather a company?

    A group of friends would form a team to play volleyball against other teams.

    If a group wanted to form two teams for an informal game, they would pick sides.

    Company doesn't fit either scenario.
