Bring your game!
Welcome to Toronto SandSharks Beach Volleyball, a group of over 300 hard-hitting LGBT and homo-friendly athletes who sweat it out in grueling games of 2-on-2 every summer. We've been around since 1998 as a non-commercial volunteer-run group catering mainly to tournament-calibre indoor and beach tour players. Go ahead. Bring your game!
You'll love every aching minute
You already play lots of volleyball or other high-cardio team sports. Now you want to try 2-on-2 beach volleyball, one of the most demanding sports out there. This is all-out cardio assault. In public. No substitutes. No time-outs. You'll have to make plenty of spectacular plays. Under a hot sun, on hot sand, wearing pretty much nothing. You'll be caked in sand, dripping sweat, gasping for air. And you'll love every aching minute. As every SandShark does.
How it works
Interested in joining? Contact us at email@example.com. Visiting from another LGBT sports league? Get in touch with us! We'd love to see you at the beach.
You do not need to bring a partner. In fact you cannot play with the same person more than once each day.
A great way to spend a summer!
To keep things social, our main rule is that you must pair with a different player every game and with all players of all calibres as equally as possible throughout the season. Between games, relax with new friends. After an exhausting day at the beach, get a group together and reload your severely depleted carbs over dinner. It's a fantastic way to build a network of friends.
When and Where
Various weekend and holiday dates thru the summer, at the eastern Beaches or at Hanlan's Point. From early to exhaustion. Come play for a few hours or make a day of it. The beaches are very busy with tournaments and special events, so we play only a few times each summer, and the schedule is published in advance. You won't want to miss those dates. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to be put on the email list for date-of-play updates.
After a 2-year covid hiatus, we are busy planning our 2022 beach season. Join us anytime during the summer!
