High Caliber Beach Volleyball on Display Once Again for the Toronto Beach Community

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 11, 2009) - This upcoming weekend, August 15 & 16, the Toronto Beach community will be treated once again with some outstanding beach volleyball thanks to the annual Canadian So Pro Tournament. Ashbridges beach will be the host site for what looks to be a very promising turnout over this two-day tournament. Some of the best beach volleyball players in all of Canada will be competing for the first place cash prize.

One of the highlights of this year's tournament is the return of 2008 Men's champion Conrad Leinemann. Leinemann, who represented Canada at the 2000 Sydney Games, is well known for owning the fastest serve in the world at one point; being clocked at 104.4 km/hour. Challenging Leinemann for the 2009 So Pro Tournament title is one of Leinemann's former partners, Rich Vanhuizen. This time around, however, they will be competing against one another for the first place cash prize. Vanhuizen now competes for Canada at the highest levels as one of our best beach players in the country. If both of their teams manage to make it to the finals on Sunday, all of the fans will be entertained with an amazing match between two former teammates.

The So Pro Beach Volleyball Tour is one branch of Not So Pro Sports, a sports and social events company located in the Beach area. Anyone who makes their way to watch the So Pro players on August 15th and 16th will also be able to watch the Not So Pro Beach Tour in progress at the same time. With over 170 teams playing at all different skill levels, this tour stop is worth checking out. Included in the Not So Pro Beach Tour is a large beer tent, a number of great sponsors with free giveaways, and lots of music and prizes.

Toronto is the second last of the Not So Pro Beach Tour stops. The Tour has already been to Wasaga and Grand Bend and will next stop in Niagara. There is also a 2's tournament located at Ashbridges Bay during the weekend of September 12th and 13th. Everyone is welcome to come and watch some great volleyball.
