There will be league play at the new complex, where residents can enjoy healthy competition. Additionally, Midtown Beach will eventually host other activities, such as beach soccer, yoga and fitness boot camps. The expectation for these additional activities is a September launch, with a beach soccer tournament ending the month. In October, residents can expect beach tennis leagues to begin to open up. The city will also look to open up a Movies in the Park series for the fall and winter.
"The Beach Sports Complex has breathed new life into an old facility," said city public relations coordinator Kirsten O'Donnell. "On league nights, we’re seeing as many as 100 players and spectators at the complex. Just by adding this one facility, the city has been able to double the number of teams in our beach volleyball leagues."
