Day 45 – Yes… I am going to talk about Beach Volleyball in Vancouver in February…
I just received my newsletter from Urban Rec. Urban Rec organizes a lot of different sports and activities in and around Vancouver throughout the entire year… check out their site here.
My newsletter informed me that registration for Beach Volleyball starts on March 7th, 2011. The league itself starts in April. I am a diehard fan of beach volleyball… I’m not that good at it, but there is something to be said about being out on the beach (or artificial beach), in the sun (or sometimes sun), and having some beers with some of your friends while getting some ‘exercise’.
Urban Rec does a couple different locations for beach vball during the season. Our team plays out of the Urban Beach location, which is roughly 30 manmade courts just North of Terminal Ave and East of Main Street. While there is no water view from this location, there is super clean deep sand… and cops don’t come by and harass you if you are having a brew. Urban Rec runs the season in 3 – 7week sessions. They divide the skill into 5 levels... there are people that look like they have no right to step on a volley ball court to those who think they can still make the majors (whatever that is called in vball)
I know people are not thinking about beach volleyball now, but you need to register a team as soon as registration opens… this will sell out fast. Check out the specific vball info here.
