If you choose to spend the day at one of our local beaches it is not uncommon to see a span of nets covering a corner of the soft beaded sand. Beach Volleyball has been a common summer sport for many years and every season individuals of all levels flock to the nets to soak in the sun and hang out with friends. Urban Rec is the largest local organization in Vancouver which supports beach volleyball along with many other leisurely sports.
If you are one who doesn’t enjoy spending the summer in a gym, leisurely activities such as beach volleyball will be your key to keeping those pounds off throughout the warm season. To register for Urban Rec you are required to register as a team therefore you need to find a few friends and register all together. Urban Rec offers three different seasons each starting with a session that seeds your team into the appropriate pool. The amazing thing about the Urban Rec league is the season continues through rain or shine!
If you decide to head down to the beach and participate in volleyball why not make a day of it and add in some other activities. Kitsilano beach also has basketball courts and tennis courts which are all excellent cardiovascular activities. I have posted links below for Urban Rec and Kitsilano you will find each website is user friendly and easy to navigate. Now that the weather is warm enough get out there and enjoy what Vancouver has to offer!
