Where to play volleyball
Most Vancouver beaches have areas for sand volleyball courts. Some have permanent stanchions (posts) for volleyball nets. Lifeguards at the sites will sign out nets to the public free of charge if you leave your credit card or identification as a deposit. You must provide your own ball. Some beaches also have space available to set up temporary volleyball nets. You must provide your own poles, net, and ball.
Depending on the site, game duration, field type, and availability, you may also be able to set up volleyball nets on grass areas in neighbourhood parks.
IMPORTANT: You cannot insert volleyball posts into Grade A grass fields or artificial turf fields.
Players may use the courts on a first come, first served basis; courts are not reserved. There is no time limit for volleyball court use.

Join a volleyball team or league
Most clubs, teams and leagues are maintained by organizations that are affiliated with Sport BC. Representatives from these organizations can help you find leagues and teams in your area.
In addition, information about local teams and clubs that are looking for players can be found in the sport's "Game Summary" section of the Vancouver Sun or the Province newspapers.
Adapted sports programs are a great way to meet new people and stay active. The sports offered by the park board and community user groups include sledge hockey, blind hockey, basketball, boccia, ball hockey, wheelchair rugby, and indoor soccer. In the summer Access Services partners with a number of outdoor recreation organizations to offer a chance for people to try adapted sports such as adapted kayaking, waterskiing, golf, canoeing, sailing and more.
