Players range from young converts from the conventional indoor game and high school club competitors to adult league and tournament enthusiasts, sand volleyball’s popularity is on the rise. Blue Sky Volleyball’s Steve Scanga, coordinates instruction, high school competition, and adult pick-up play at the Chapel Hill courts.

"Chapel Hill Parks and Recreation set up this 503(c) Friends of Chapel Hill fund so that people could make a donation with a specific category for beach volleyball,” Scanga said, “so we got all of our friends that had anything to do with volleyball to donate. We raised around $20,000 to build these courts. We also got a few grants – from Strowd Roses, the Oaks Foundation, USA volleyball, and the Town of Chapel Hill contributed the actual poles for a couple thousand dollars. Parents donated the rest."
