Beach Nationals Weekend 2018

Volleyball Canada’s 2018 Beach Nationals, which included youth and senior events, was held this past weekend at Ashbridge’s Bay, Toronto.

"It was a great weekend of volleyball in Toronto,” said Volleyball Canada’s director of domestic competition, Sandra de Graaff. “I’d like to thank the referees, volunteers and staff, and of course our sponsors lululemon, Wilson, Performance Health, InterPipeline and event partner, the Ontario Volleyball Association.”

The weather was ideal, with the exception of a rain postponement late on Friday afternoon.
