Seafront Oval being transformed into volleyball arena

TRUCKLOADS of sand are being delivered to Pialba's Seafront Oval on Thursday morning to transform it into a beach volleyball arena.

The Fraser Coast Regional Beach Volleyball Invitational will take over the oval from 10am on Saturday.

Crews have estimated it will take about six to eight truckloads of sand to fill the arena which is lined with black plastic, before the first game.

Three truckloads had already been delivered by 7.30am on Thursday.

A bobcat will spread out the sand before about four men with rakes level it out.

The two-day invitational will see triple Olympian Joshua Slack play in one of eight teams.

The free event will also include DJ's and fireworks.
