The Sargent Park Beach Volleyball Centre will host beach volleyball at the 2017 Canada Summer Games. The new development was built inside the Susan Auch Oval, an outdoor ¼ mile speed skating venue. It is also part of a community recreation complex named after Cindy Klassen, a Winnipegger, Canada Games alumni, six-time Olympic medallist and four-time World Champion speed skater.
2017 Games Legacy
Originally planned as a temporary build, the relationship between speed skating’s winter training season and the summer use by beach volleyball created the opportunity for 10 permanent beach volleyball courts following the Games. This facility will become a beach volleyball centre for Winnipeg and provide greater training opportunities for Manitoba athletes to help them prepare to represent our province for years to come.
The adjacent Cindy Klassen Recreation Complex offers many permanent amenities to compliment this outdoor venue.
