HAMILTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 22, 2011) - The recreational sports and social scene is about to be revolutionized in the Golden Horseshoe with the largest man-made beach sports complex in Canada being launched on the Hamilton waterfront during Canada Day Weekend.

Not So Pro Sports and Sandbox Sports and Entertainment are teaming up to provide co-ed sports leagues, tournaments, events and entertainment right on the water at Confederation Park in Hamilton.

The beach sports and entertainment complex will initially include 12 beach volleyball courts (24 courts with lights by next season) as well as 3 soccer/ultimate frisbee fields.

The facilities will be open to the public to enjoy for free on the July 1st long weekend.

"We're bringing world class recreational fun to the beach in Hamilton," said Not So Pro president John Morrison, who anticipates plenty of interest not only in Hamilton but in Burlington, Oakville, Cambridge and Niagara as well.

Moving forward, the complex will host multiple sports, multiple nights, multiple leagues and divisions, tournaments, corporate events, kids' camps and after school programs. Leagues will include Beach Volleyball and Beach Soccer as well as Grass Soccer and Ultimate Frisbee.
