New site for the 2012 Senior Beach Volleyball National Championships Confirmed

Ottawa – June 19th, 2012


Since the unfortunate cancellation of the 2012 Beach Volleyball SWATCH World Tour Québec Open Jeep in April, Volleyball Canada has been working hard to find another venue for the Senior Division 1 and Division 2 Beach Volleyball National Championships. Both events had planned to use the same facilities, with the National Championships being held the week before the Québec Open Jeep.


The organization was trying to keep the event in the province of Quebec, but after valiant attempts in other cities in the province, Volleyball Canada had to look across the country. It then turned to the host of the 2012 Youth Beach Volleyball National Championships that are taking place in Vancouver, BC and it found a competition site.


An additional 20 courts will be added to Spanish Banks Beaches in Vancouver, BC to host the 2012 Youth and Senior Beach Volleyball National Championship from August 17th to 19th, 2012. Volleyball Canada will co-host the championships with Volleyball BC.


More information on both the Youth and Senior Beach Volleyball Championships will be posted within the next week on the Volleyball Canada website.
