Avondale to Serve Up New Sand Volleyball Complex with Opening Event and Youth ClinicSource: Avondale, AZ

Avondale is upping its sports game with a new Sand Volleyball Complex at The BLVD and it's anything but a bump in the road for the West Valley city's sports scene. Officials have announced that the ribbon will be cut on June 4 at 8:30 a.m., with the festivities including tours and a free youth clinic, not to mention the obligatory refreshments.

Located at 750 N Park Ave., the complex boasts five competition-grade courts and a whole host of amenities meant to spike residents' interest. Starting with a youth clinic at 9:30 a.m., the event is poised to set the city as a major player in local amateur sports, having already established a solid sporting reputation according to Bryan Hughes, who told Avondale officials, "The Sand Volleyball Complex at The BLVD complements the myriad of sports and recreation amenities in our city."

Adjacent to the Randall McDaniel Sports Complex, the new facility didn't just come together without some serious investment. To the tune of $2.9 million, including a $162,500 grant from the Arizona Sports Tourism Association, the Sand Volleyball Complex offers shaded spectator seating, drinking fountains, and an array of security measures. Not to be overlooked, the facility also comes with a built-in automatic water system hydration for both onlookers and players alike.

The Avondale complex, constructed by the Chasse Building Team, doesn’t just feature courts with perimeter fencing for a sense of security and privacy. Upgrades like security cameras and landscape improvements add to the swanky new feel, and a conveniently placed restroom building caters to the comfort of visitors. Preregistration for the free clinic is advised and can be done by signing up online at the Youth Volleyball Clinic page.
