Beach 4 Life's June 11 Event see's RECORD NUMBERS!

Beach 4 Life & Manitoba Beach Volleyball experienced a wonderful display of growth, development, and movement in the right direction on June 11, 2011 with the first Senior Tour Open event taking place in combination with the second stop on our Youth Tour.  Record numbers were recorded for overall participants with 50 TEAMS, with our Senior Men Division leading the way with 20 teams! Since the onset of Beach 4 Life in 2008, over the past 3 years the largest we've experienced in a Senior Men or Women's division was 16, with a total of 30 Teams between the Senior Men & Women Divisions.  Rounding out this explosion of numbers was our newly added 2011 Youth Tour component with 16U & 14U divisions at this event which saw 16U Girls with 8 Teams, 14U Girls with 8 Teams, and 14U Boys with 5 Teams.  As a result of this explosion of participants, every one of the 16 courts were in use making it a full event across the board. As the registration deadline approached, some of the last day deadline registrants unfortunately had to be turned away as there were simply no more courts to facilitate the additional numbers

In addition, the event also saw the launch of the Beach 4 Life BBQ with $4 Hamburgers, Smokies, Veggie Burgers, and Veggie Dogs.  With also our 2011 Beach 4 Life Clothing Line featuring player tops, long sleeve dry fits, and pull over hoodies onsite for purchase (photos & pricing available online).

Beach 4 Life would like to take this opportunity to extend a BIG thank you to all the players & parents for their early registration, communication and travel (as some teams traveled in from Steinbach, Brandon, and as far as Saskatchewan), staff, fans, officials and of course all of our 2011 Sponsors who made this record breaking event possible.  Beach volleyball in Manitoba hasn't enjoyed these types of numbers in 10 years and we are only looking to grow from here!

June 25 see's our Senior Tour #2 & Youth Tour #3 Event taking place @ Melrose Park CC, with June 26 featuring our Stefan Savoie Coed 6's Memorial Fundraiser Tournament.  For those who were present at our June 11th event, and for those looking to make June 25 or 26 their first, make sure to REGISTER EARLY to give yourself the best chance of playing!
