It’s that time of year again when the city starts to migrate to the beach. One of the greatest beaches in all of Vancouver (if not Canada) is Kits Beach in Kitsilano. You’ve got sand, grass, sights and some of the best courts for any sport you’re looking to play. From recreational players with their frisbees and Bocce sets to the amateur and professional Volleyball, and Basketball players, this beach has it all. This year, the tennis courts are being re-constructed to match the play (pun intended) of the competitors in this neighbourhood.
I am amazed at how many people attend this beach on a daily basis between the months of May to October, every year. The peak of the season truly happens in August when the cities biggest sporting event happens at Kits Beach, known for the past 4 years as KitsFest.
Some of the greatest volleyball athletes attend this event to try and be crowned the King or Queen of the Court.

This blogger will most definitely be present for this outstanding event. Here is a list of the sponsors you’ll find present at the event:
