Beach Volleyball Stadium

A solemn opening ceremony of the new Ventspils Beach Volleyball Stadium was held on 20 May, 2017, on the Blue Flag beach of Ventspils. The ceremony was attended by Chairman of the Council of Ventspils City Aivars Lembergs, President of the Volleyball Federation of Latvia Atis Sausnitis and representatives of the Olympic Centre Ventspils.

The Beach Volleyball Stadium comprises five volleyball courts, lockers, storehouse and room for coaches, shower units and illumination. Volleyball courts will be normally equipped with spectator stands with a capacity of 48 seats, but if necessary the Beach Volleyball Stadium can be transformed into the international competition venue with one central volleyball court and three additional courts, and spectator stands for up to 1000 spectators.

Presently, it is known for its high-quality infrastructure equipped with modern sports facilities for students of the Beach Volleyball Club Block and other citizens of Ventspils, as well as the best volleyball players of Latvia. The new Beach Volleyball Stadium will host international and Latvian competitions. The project was implemented on the initiative of the Beach Volleyball Club Block, and cooperation between the local government of Ventspils City and the Ministry of Education and Science.

To popularize a healthy lifestyle, to create more opportunities for practicing sport, and, respecting a growing interest in sport, the year of 2016 became a start for the development of the beach volleyball infrastructure. Last autumn four public volleyball courts solemnly opened their doors on the right and left bank of Venta. Today the citizens of Ventspils are offered 9 beach volleyball courts.
