After a break of four long years, AFK Beach Volleyball is thrilled to announce its triumphant return to Canary Wharf! This summer, Canary Wharf’s Canada Square Park will be transformed into a vibrant beach oasis, complete with two full-sized volleyball courts and an impressive 200 tonnes of sand, all in support of a noble cause – raising vital funds for children and young people with disabilities.
The courts are open to all, offering pay-to-play sessions for enthusiasts to hone their beach volleyball skills in the sand or challenge friends and colleagues to friendly lunchtime competitions. What’s more, this year marks the highly anticipated return of the Beach Volleyball Championships, where teams from across Canary Wharf will compete for the prestigious title of AFK Beach Champions.
Booking a court costs £12.50 per person per hour, providing sole use of the court and volleyballs. A minimum of four players is required, with booking secured by a £50 deposit, followed by payment of the balance for the full number of participants at your chosen session.
“We’re ecstatic to announce the return of AFK Beach Volleyball to Canary Wharf. This event has always been about fun, camaraderie, and making a difference for children and young people with disabilities. We can’t wait to see the courts filled with participants and spectators, enjoying the summer vibes while supporting a worthy cause,” said Lyn Prodger at AFK Beach Volleyball.
AFK Beach Volleyball Charity Championships at Canary Wharf has always been a favourite event among top UK beach and volleyball athletes. In previous years, renowned athletes such as Paralympian Sitting Volleyball Captain Rob Richardson, London 2012 Team GB Captain Ben Pipes, Chris Gregory, Phil Smith, Vicky Palmer, and Jess Grimson have graced the sands.
Beach volleyball has surged in popularity across London in recent years, with numerous councils building courts to their boroughs. The event’s unique setting amid the cityscape of Canary Wharf adds an extra layer of charm and excitement.
SideOut director, Alex Chevau, exclaimed, “Bringing beach volleyball to Canary Wharf is amazing – it’s always good to see everyone so excited about the sport and out in the sun and on the sand, in the city.”
