The Legacy Begins in 1997
Beach Blast was the brainchild of a few guys that really loved volleyball. Their achieved goal is Toronto’s biggest indoor beach featuring everything you need to feel like summer never ends…like you’re at the biggest beach party in town!
Inside our 30,000 sq ft building in uptown Toronto, you’ll find 7 heated indoor sand volleyball courts….a more reliable venue than mother nature could ever offer! These 7 courts, plus our 8 outdoor sand courts, allow our customers to book any event – indoors or outdoors – and never worry about the weather.
Come In & Relax…Beachside!
We have the amenities to help you sit back and enjoy. Inside our facility you’ll find the usual beach fare: beach chairs and picnic tables, combined with the comforts of home: satellite TV’s and indoor sound system. Our snack bar is fully licensed, so you can satisfy your munchies or have a drink while watching over the beach from either of two vistas…that’s right, we even have an upper level!
The Shermer Family Dream
George Shermer, an original Beach Blast partner, has seen hundreds of thousands people enjoy his vision of an indoor beach. After partnering with Josh Gluskin in 2001, the two have expanded this dream and have helped develop other projects, including The Docks indoor and outdoor volleyball leagues, and Victory Indoor Volleyball – a facility devoted to indoor court volleyball.
Our Newest Addition
Ashbridges Bay (The Beaches)
In 2010, Beach Blast partnered with the Ontario Volleyball Association and became the managers of the Beach Volleyball Leagues at Ashbridges Bay in downtown Toronto. One of the world’s biggest beach volleyball venues, this league uses 96 courts at the beach in Toronto selling out each summer season. You gotta see it to believe it!
Our greatest asset is the memories we share with you. In the last 23 years, we’ve seen…
- Your child’s first footstep in the sand.
- Students and teachers playing together.
- Employees & their bosses diving in the sand for a ball during company tournaments.
- International rap sensation Drake host a benefit tournament for a local charity, with special guests including Beach Volleyball Olympian Josh Binstock.
- Kids & Adults being taught the fundamentals by Beach Volleyball Olympians Mark Heese & John Child at the Taste of The Danforth.
- Teams buying other teams drinks at the bar after playing against each other in the leagues.
- Families having their reunions in the sand.
- Corporations baking bread to launch a new product.
- Olympic athletes training for the 2004 & 2008 Games in Athens, and the 2012 & 2016 games in London & Rio.
- Smiles. Tons of them. From everyone!
Thanks to everyone for making this dream a blast.
Come out and play 🙂
