Courtenay Recreation offers revamped beach volleyball

Some play beach volleyball for exercise. Some play it for fun. Others play it for the competition. Some play it for all three.

Regardless of why you play beach volleyball the fact is there’s no better place to be in the evening than feeling the sand between your toes and the “thump” of the ball as you make contact with it.

And Tuesday evenings at Standard Park is your home for that feeling. Beach volleyball, friends and fun – it’s all here, on Cliffe Avenue in Courtenay.

Courtenay Recreation is offering a revamped beach volleyball session that will include prizes, fun and competition.  We will take the first eight teams of three to play and all teams must have a minimum of one woman on the court at all times.

“Sign up a team now for this exciting session as we anticipate spaces to fill quickly,” a CRA spokesperson said.

Play starts Tuesday, June 14 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and will run until Aug. 16.  A wrap-up barbecue and prizes will follow the final evening of play and is included in the fee of $30 per person.

“This is the perfect way to stay in shape and have fun during the hot summer weather (which is promised from weathermen everywhere),” the spokesperson added.

For more information or to register, call Courtenay Recreation at 250-338-5371 or 250-338-1000.
