If you live in the northeast you know one thing- winters are long, cold and the sun doesn’t shine quite enough to give us that necessary vitamin D and brighten our moods. But we northeasterners embrace it; down jacket check, thermalwear check, now that you’re shoveled out, where can you go for some fun? How about shedding some of those layers and heading to the beach?
Hot Shots Real Beach Volleyball located on University Ave. brings the beach indoors. Rochester’s only indoor sand volleyball facility is open year round for leagues, tournaments, pick-up games, and court rentals and they are busy 6 nights a week. Weekends you’ll find court rentals and tournaments keeping the fun going, and the sand flying. The adjacent hardwood basketball court and 2 regulation sized volleyball courts double as dodgeball courts. If you need to de-stress and laugh, grab your office-mates pull up your tube socks, throw on a head band, and relive your glory days.
Food and refreshments are available with plenty of viewing areas, seating, and TVs including a big screen projection TV in the large restaurant area.
