Where to play volleyball
You can play volleyball at most beach areas, parks, and fields. Some conditions may apply. Play areas are available on a first come, first served basis. Courts don't require a reservation unless you are organizing a league practice or tournament. There is no time limit for volleyball court use.
At beach areas, many beaches have sand volleyball courts with stanchions (posts) for volleyball nets. You can borrow a net from a lifeguard free-of-charge when you provide a credit card or identification as a deposit. Bring your own ball.
Some beaches also have a space for temporary volleyball nets. Bring your own poles, net, and ball.
In parks and fields, you can set up a volleyball net depending on the site, game duration, field type, and availability.
IMPORTANT: Do not insert volleyball posts into artificial turf fields or Grade A grass fields. Call 3-1-1 if you are unsure.
Volleyball court times
From Victoria Day in May to Labour Day in September, 11:30am to 8:30pm
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.
