Volleydome Technical Data
The Volleydome is one of Canada's most unique volleyball structures in that it was built specifically for indoor hard court and beach volleyball.
Commonly referred to as the 'dome' or 'bubble', the Volleydome is an air supported structure, designed and manufactured in Canada. The material that the Volleydome is made from is a vinyl type fabric that is very light yet durable. The fabric is anchored to the ground by an engineered concrete pad known as a 'grade beam'. Air is pumped into the structure via an HVAC (heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) unit that keeps the building pressured and 'inflated' 365 days a year.
The Volleydome is in fact 'not' a bubble, in that it will not pop or explode in the event of a tear in the fabric. Special dampers controlled by computer in the HVAC unit, adjust to the needs of the pressure in the building. The nickname 'bubble' comes from the soft round curves of the fabric's outer shell.
The Volleydome, with 40' high ceilings, is insulated and heated for year-round comfort. There are four outdoor beach courts with a great view of downtown Calgary. The Volleydome takes pride in the six hardwood volleyball courts, built to NBA specifications for that ultimate playing experience. Simply put, you won't find a better playing surface for the game of volleyball anywhere.
