BOSTON, Mass. (WPRI) — If Boston becomes the host city for the 2024 Olympic Games, the home of beach volleyball would not be Boston Common; it’d be a park in Quincy, much closer to the water.
The group says it’s going to hold a community meeting in July to discuss the proposal and solicit feedback from residents. Quincy Mayor Tom Koch applauded that move at a news conference Wednesday, saying the opportunity is “tremendous” and “can only be captured with the active involvement and support of the community.”
Wednesday’s announcement comes after Gov. Charlie Baker made a plea to organizers almost a month ago to have a more completed plan released.

The proposal includes structures for a main playing field, media and operations, and training courts.
Organizers said they’ll continue to announce proposals for venues throughout the rest of the month, with a fully updated plan for hosting the games to follow.
