Project - SMB 14 Beach Volleyball Courts


South Mission Beach is home to 14 beach volleyball courts. These courts were initially installed in 1997 with the help of Bruk Vandeweghe, several volleyball enthusiasts and Bill Walton. Since. 2002, SD BIG has been raising money to provide this facility with year-round access to beach volleyball for all ages, abilities and income level. We serve over 55,000 people annually from beginners to professional beach volleyball players. A special thanks to Bert Collins, Larry Terbell and Alfredo Vejar, who’ve been instrumental over the years with hands-on maintenance and coordinating with Parks & Rec to flatten the sand on a regular basis! This project requires approximately $3000-6000 annually.

Let's build a new beach volleyball facility in San Diego!

Beach volleyball is a fast-growing sport here in San Diego. Our 2022 goal is to raise $14,000 ($1000 per court) and work on the opportunities to fulfill this goal. 
Volunteer or Donate Today!
Each court will have a fundraising goal of $1000. Raise $200 and get super cool swag including a beach volleyball towel and t-shirt/tank top. Raise $1000 and get your initials or your Meetup Groups initials painted on the pole for the 2022 year. See our progress below.
