2020 Volleyball Canada Beach Nationals Cancelled
June 01, 2020: Volleyball Canada’s 2020 Beach Nationals and affiliated events are now cancelled. The tournament was to be held Aug. 13 to 16 at Ashbridges Bay in Toronto.
"As restrictions are still in place in Ontario and most of the country, it’s not possible to run Beach Nationals this year," said Sandra de Graaff, Volleyball Canada’s Director of Domestic Competitions.
"As with all our domestic events, we are looking ahead to planning for next year’s tournaments. We thank all those who planned to attend, as well as our sponsors and partners, for their patience.” The Senior and Youth Nationals are cancelled, as well as Beach Canada Cup and Volleyball Canada’s alumni event.
The 2020 FIVB U19 Beach Volleyball World Championship Selection Tournament, which was also to be held during this time, is postponed. Qualification will now be held for women August 22-23, and men August 29-30 at the VC Beach High Performance Centre (HPC) at Downsview Park.
