There are benefits and drawbacks to each of the Chicago-area Beach Ball tourney venues. The suburban locations offer easy access and great parking, but has limited court space. North Avenue Beach has tons of courts, but access and parking is problematic. (Sorry, we don't provide parking or hotel suggestions.) Still, they all have at least one thing in common, we have lots of fun at each location.

With about 50 courts on the south beach, 30 up north (4 blocks north of the south courts), North Ave. Beach is the crown jewel of Midwest beach v-ball. Located at the lakefront in Lincoln Park, traffic is heavy & parking is expensive. But the experience is priceless.
