A reminder the beach courts down at Parksville Community Park will be jumpin’ this weekend as players from all over the province square off as part of Volleybash 23.

B.C.’s longest-running beach volleyball tournament kicks off Friday night with a beer ‘n burger night at the Rod & Gun. Saturday sees Co-Ed Triples action, and Sunday is the Men’s and Women’s Doubles.

“We have divisions for all skill levels,” said tournament founder Shane Hyde.

Volleybash features four divisions: Rec (little or no beach volleyball experience); Comp (beach volleyball experience but limited tournament experience); Super-Comp (experience on the beach and in tournaments) and Open (elite beach volleyball experience).

Two notables in the mix this year are Canadian Beach Volleyball Team members Maverick Hatch and Jamie Broder.

The finals for both events get underway in the afternoon.
