City of Summerside: Sports & Entertainment Atlantic (S|E|A), in partnership with the City of Summerside, is pleased to announce the return of SandJam to the Maritimes in the summer of 2016! SandJam Summerside presented by Eastlink will take place on the beautiful Summerside waterfront from Friday, July 22nd through Sunday, July 24th, during the Summerside Lobster Festival. As the premier professional beach volleyball competition in Canada, SandJam Summerside presented by Eastlink will feature the top 8 Canadian beach volleyball teams, many of which compete on the FIVB International circuit. We invite volleyball fans from across the country to visit the island to see the Canada’s best as they prepare for the 2016 Olympic games in Brazil. The championships will attract athletes, coaches, staff and spectators and the SETS team estimates an economic impact of close to $750,000 for the City.
