The Beach House story: Over 20 years ago a group of strangers became friends playing volleyball along the banks of the Charles River in Cambridge. We were (and are) by no means particularly gifted at the game of beach volleyball (even that faint praise might be generous). Nevertheless, we all found that playing with and against our friends became vitally important parts of our lives. Over the decades our group grew. Our friendships and community deepened. And beach volleyball continued to fuel our joy.
New England’s long and harsh winters, of course, put a bit of a downer into our little story. And, while indoor gymnasium floors and indoor volleyball are fun, they are never quite the soul-enhancing experience of a warm day at the beach with friends. And the floors are hell on the knees.
When we talked with other ballers in the area, we realized that the passion we felt about the game and our volleyball community of friendships was shared by many others within their respective groups. So too was their deep desire to play all year (or in summer when it rains or into the dark of night). So we decided to do something about it. We set out to build the very best indoor beach facility possible. And to assemble the very best partners and people to make the experience truly special. We are very proud of The Beach House.
More than a great facility with great sand, though, we have built a place where we hope old friends will come together, where new friendships and beach volleyball friend groups will be formed, and where the broader New England beach volleyball community can grow and thrive
