The Sandbox Summer 2021 Beach Volleyball Tournament Series

Sponsored by Groton Parks and Recreation

THE SANDBOX is excited to announce the 2021 Summer Beach Volleyball Tournament Series! Our tournaments will be held at The Sandbox Indoor Beach Sports Center in Groton CT, Esker Point Beach in Groton CT, and Ocean Beach Park in New London CT.


IMPORTANT NOTE: If a Division is full and you want to play, PLEASE REGISTER anyway to get on the WAIT LIST!  The number of nets allocated to each Division will be throttled based on the number of teams registered for each Division, up to the stated Division maximum.  If your team doesn’t get in your registration fee will be 100% refunded – so if you want to play, register today!


REGISTER and pay through the AVPAmerica web site:

- $80 per team, payment is required at time of registration, or your entry will be removed from the Entry List without notice or recourse.

- All registering teams MUST have two (2) Players listed, and BOTH Players MUST have a VALID AVPAmerica membership, at the time of registration. Any team registered as a 1-Player team (no Player 2 listed), or any team registered with Player(s) not having a valid AVP America membership, will be removed from the Entry List without notice or recourse.

- Due to a limited number of nets at some of our event venues, the number of available nets per Division will be ‘throttled’ based on registrations.  If all nets are not fully allocated by the Wednesday before the tournament then available nets will be allocated to Divisions with a Wait List, or new Divisions.

- For tournaments at our Indoor Beach facility, if the Divisions offered have enough demand we will run a morning 830am to 300pm tournament, and an afternoon 300pm to 900pm tournament.
