The following is a message from the Toronto Pro Beach League:

Week Two sets the stage for an amazing playoff race in week 3 of the Toronto Pro Beach League! 

OnPoint Beach Volleyball and Phoenix Volleyball battled to start week two off right! Both matchups went the distance. Fans in attendance were rooting for the famous with OnPoint winning both in three! Megan and Nicole McNamara defeated Julie Gordon and Shanice Marcelle 2-1 (22-20, 17-21, 15-11). Kevin Benn and Mark Gatto earned the victory over Andrew Kocur and Andrew Richards 2-1 (19-21, 21-14, 16-14).  

“This league has been very valuable for our season preparation. OnPoint is getting better every week, we're hoping to get the win this week and make the championship!” said Nicole McNamara.

“I think in general coming off the holiday break helped me get the compete factor back after spending time with family and friends,” said Julie Gordon. “I wasn't feeling the biggest competition flame, but after we played our first week, I felt an aggressive mindset come back.”

Galaxy Volleyball Club is the only undefeated team left in the league as they defeated Leaside 2-0. Marie-Christine Lapointe and Amanda Harnett defeated Rian Lenarduzzi and Anna Dunn-Suen 2-0 (21-15, 21-14). Jake MacNeil had former National Champion Cam Wheelan fill in as an injury sub partner to take on Defending National Champions Ivan Reka and Simon Fecteau-Boutin. Reka/Fecteau-Boutin won the match 2-0 (21-16, 21-12)

“The timing of the league is perfect as it prepares us for our first World Tour event in Cambodia in early February,” stated Amanda Harnett. “MC and I have been focusing on technical details throughout the off-season and this league is a great opportunity to put these skills into action.”

"Couldn't be more excited about week three! A lot on the line with only two teams making it to the championship round! The level of volleyball has been ridiculously high. Come out to see some more super high-level ball! - Jake MacNeil Leaside Volleyball Club 

"To me, this is a perfect situation. All four teams are still eligible for the Championship Finals, which means we will see some extremely high-level play in week three!” exclaimed Josh Nicol, Toronto Pro Beach League Commissioner. “We'd like to see club athletes come out and support their beach team as this may be the last time they compete in our first season. "
