What is likely the most modern indoor beach facility in North America is right here in Richmond. For those at the Business Excellence Awards Wednesday who didn’t know about 6Pack Indoor Beach Centre—they do now.

The Mitchell Island facility won the New Business Award. Jeff Cheng and Barry Law started the business in 2010 to satisfy the region’s craving for beach sports and activities year round.

“First I like to thank the City of Richmond for giving us a chance to create such a unique place,” said Law, in accepting the award.

The owners also offered thanks to customers, family and their growing staff.

Said Law: “We went from one staff to almost 15 now. They’re like family to me.”

6Pack is an 18,000-square-foot facility with five regulation size beach courts. Besides volleyball, the facility offers a range of other beach sports, including soccer, tennis, fitness and sand-sculpture clinics.

Also nominated: Cora Breakfast and Lunch, MLK Properties Ltd., Steveston Tattoo Company.
