It's finally nice and sunny out in Montreal. We were starting to think that was never going to happen! And if you're the sporty type of person, that means that it's time to go and play some sweet, sweet beach volleyball. Volleyball on it's own is pretty fun. But volleyball on the beach? Amazing! So if you're looking for somewhere to get your sports game on, here are 7 places in Montreal that you can go to play beach volleyball.
1. Parc Jeanne Mance
3555 Saint Urbain
Opening up once the weather warms up, Parc Jeanne Mance hosts beach volleyball tournaments throughout the summer. They have 4 well maintained courts, so grab your friends and head on over for some outdoor fun. Check out their Facebook for more info on tournament sign up.
CMSS is an organization that offers both individual tournaments and, for the more committed, beach volleyball leagues. You can sign up for 2x2, 4x4, or 6x6. Their games are played inside the massive Association Montreal Beach warehouse that houses amazing beach volleyball courts. You can get more information on CMSS volleyball here.
3. Parc Jean Duceppe
Rue Andre Laurendeau
During the summer Parc Jean Duceppe sets up a beach volley ball area from May 26-September 27. There aren't any official leagues or tournaments here, so it's a great place to have a casual game with friends or to have a team practice so that you dominate at your next tournament. Check out their website for more details.
4. Association Montreal Beach
For those looking to play beach volleyball a bit more casually, Association Montreal Beach has a deal on right now for a summer membership, which allows you drop-in privileges, for $99 for June to August. The courts here are huge and always great to play on. And since it's indoors, you'll be able to play no matter what the weather's like.
5. Parc Joseph Paré
Beaubien and 41 E
Joseph Paré opens up an awesome beach volleyball court in the park every summer. You can reserve time slots in advance so that you'll be guaranteed to get some court time. Check out their website here for more info.
6. Parc du Pere Marquette
Rue de Bellechasse
Very similar to Parc Joseph Paré, Pere Marquette also has a seasonal beach volleyball court in their park. It too can be reserved, so that you and your friends have somewhere regular to play. Check out the website for more info on how to schedule your volleyball time.
7. Clock Tower Beach
Rue Quai de l'Horloge
Sat in the heart of Old Port, Clock Tower Beach is an amazing spot to go play some volleyball and maybe take a dip in the water or grab a nice cold beer. If you're looking to get that authentic, relaxed, beach volleyball vibe, then this is the place to go. Check out their website for more information.
