The OVA Beach Tour is the heart of our Beach Program and one of the most successful beach volleyball programs in North America. The OVA Beach Tour is constantly evolving to provide more opportunities for athletes to enter the sport, succeed and develop their beach volleyball skills. Not only do we have numerous Youth and Adult Beach Tour events, but we also offer Satellite events at other locations each weekend to reach more beach volleyball players across Ontario.
The beach season culminates with the pinnacle event - Beach Ontario Championships held at Ashbridges Bay in Toronto each year. To be eligible to compete in Ontario Championships, each beach partner must compete in a minimum of three (3) events (two of which must be an OVA Beach Tour event).
The OVA Beach Tour is a 2-on-2 format for male and females in the following divisions:
