Beach Volleyball coming to Colchester Beach

Posted on Tuesday May 08, 2018

Please be advised, the beach volleyball league will not be running in 2018. Please check back in 2019.

Bump, set, spike! The Town of Essex is excited to announce the launch of a brand new beach volleyball league at beautiful Colchester Beach.

The league, scheduled on Monday nights from June 11 until August 27, will see teams of 4 players face off against each other in a fun and recreational setting.

“This league will really help us to showcase the work that has been put into Colchester Beach and surrounding area,” said Doug Sweet, Director of Community Services. “The beach is groomed several times a week, and the newly-graded hill is an ideal spot for spectators.”

Sweet also suggested bringing the family to enjoy the new amenities at the beach. Visitors can enjoy the splash pad, pirate ship play structure, and new basketball courts.

“Beach volleyball is the perfect summer sport and we’re excited to add it to the amazing things happening in Colchester,” said Jason Jolicoeur, Assistant Manager of Programs. “We encourage players who are looking to have fun and play in a non-competitive environment to come out and enjoy Colchester Beach.”

Games will begin every Monday at 6:30pm and play until dusk. The cost to participate is $300/team, taxes included. Spare players are allowed to fill in for free, which makes it easier for teams to play during a busy summer season.

Participants are asked to fill out the online form to provide their team name and player information at forms.essex.ca/2018-Colchester-Beach-Volleyball-Registration-Form

Participants can pay for the league over the phone at 519-776-8992 or via EssexConnect.
