There is arguably no better way to enjoy the summer sun than to get together with a bunch of fun people and play beach volleyball. The combination of sun, tunes, fun and friends is truly intoxicating! The courts are open to the public, so we may have other people to play with!

How to Get There:
Event Directions:

The Pumphouse Theater is located at 2140 Pumphouse Avenue SW. There is parking available along the street in front of the theater as well as a large gravel lot. The courts will be located just over the hill immediately west of the pumphouse theater building.

From Crowchild Trail exit onto Bow Trail EASTBOUND then watch for your first possible right hand lane exit off of Bow Trail. The exit is clearly marked with a sign that reads "5th Avenue Connector". Exit here and you will immediately find yourself on Pumphouse Avenue. Travel west along this road back underneath Bow Trail until you reach the Pumphouse Theater gravel parking lot. Park here then proceed to the western most edge of the lot and climb the short grassy slope to arrive at field level.

From downtown take 4th Avenue SW which turns into Bow Trail. Continue just past the Greyhound station and watch for the Pumphouse Road SW exit. Follow Pumphouse Road a short distance to Pumphouse Avenue. Turn right onto Pumphouse Avenue and you will almost immediately arrive at the gravel parking lot. Park here and proceed to the western most edge of the gravel lot then climb the short grassy slope to arrive at field level.

Follow the Bow River Pathway along the south side of Bow River between 14th Street SW and Crowchild Trail overpass. Watch for the Calgary Outdoor Club sign erected along the path just west of the Pumphouse Theater. You will find us just up and over the small incline south of the pathway.

About a 15 minute walk from the 7th, 8th OR 10th Street SW Stations. The particular train you happen to be on will dictate which one of the 3 above mentioned stops you will have to get off at. Regardless of which stop you depart from make your way to the south side of 9th Avenue SW and head westbound. You will pass by Staples and cross over 14th Street SW before eventually finding yourself just across the street from the Greyhound station. At this point you will notice a road ahead that veers off slightly to the south. This is Pumphouse Avenue. Follow this road until it ends at a gravel parking lot just beyond the Bow Trail overpass. Proceed to the western most edge of the gravel lot then climb the short grassy slope where you will then be able to see the volleyball courts.
