The Sand Club: About Us
The Dream:To share our passion and love for the game. “Fun first, competition second” is our motto because we believe that volleyball is about havin’ a blast, playing in the great AZ outdoors and kickin’ back with friends. Back in the day, we played at Minder Binders (aka the Big Red Barn) and became addicted. After that was shut down, we played at Pranksters & The Pointe South Mountain several nights a week.
With the announcement of the Pointe volleyball court getting bulldozed, we decided to start up a league of our own, catering to the East Valley. In July 2007, TheSandClub.com was born and shortly after our first league on Tuesday night consisting of 8 teams, 32 players. Ten years later, we have grown to 16 divisional leagues and over 500 players. In 2012 we began hosting tournaments for the EVP, the largest Pro-Am Volleyball Tour in the nation and in 2015 we began hosting AVPNext tournaments. The people that we’ve met on the court have become ‘framily’. We consider ourselves the luckiest people on the planet to be doing what we love with the people we love!
The Mission:The Sand Club is a volleyball organization that is dedicated to providing fun, organized beach volleyball leagues and volleyball tournaments on well maintained courts, while giving back to the community by donating proceeds from tournaments to worthy causes.
The Sand Club Culture: The Sand Club welcomes players of all ages and skill levels, from beginner to competitive players and whether you have a team or are looking for a team. We help introduce teams/players to the volleyball community in the East Valley. The Sand Club encourages “tailgating tendencies” and sharing a passion for volleyball. Our leagues echo the sound of music and good times – including rad 80’s hairband tunes 🙂 The Sand Club “DIGGS” our Champions by posting on Facebook to demonstrate how proud we are to have such a dynamic volleyball culture.
