The Sandbox Operations Update
An UPDATE from The Sandbox team!
March 16th 2020, 12:00pm
As a result of a recent announcement from the office of the State of Connecticut Governor Lamont, The Sandbox will be temporarily closed effective 8:00pm this evening, March 16th 2020. All leagues, programs and tournaments will be delayed by a minimum of 1 week – please note that this is a delay / reschedule, and not a cancellation. We will continue to monitor and implement local health district, State of Connecticut, national CDCP and international WHO guidelines. We will update all participants via email, our web site and social media each Monday morning as to a revised league, program and tournament schedule.
As we stated earlier today, we know how critically important healthy, active interaction is to everyone. And although we at The Sandbox want to provide that important piece of your everyday life as responsibly as possible, we are currently restricted from doing so at this time.
But don’t worry, our outdoor Summer 2020 Beach Volleyball Tournament series kicks off in just 2 short months, on May 16th 2020 at Ocean Beach Park in New London CT!!!

Thank you again, for all of the continued support of The Sandbox and the community around us. Let’s continue to work together to keep everyone safe, happy, healthy and active.
And please continue to do your part:
If you feel ill, are ill or are assisting someone who is ill please, please, please STAY HOME.
Enjoy The Sandbox community we have created as a group of people you can rely on for anything you might need, both personally and wholly. We are here because of you and for you!!!
Practice smart “social distancing” and a higher level of standard personal hygiene practices.
Help the environment clean and safe for our community and us.
