We have something for everyone, from light pilsners to golden lagers to brown ales to pale ales to hoppy IPA’s to coffee stouts and barrel-aged porters… and everything in between… we even have PBR for you retro-budget beer lovers!
SportsLink was founded in 2000 by Plaza Midwood resident Christian Crute. The organization has more than 20,000 Charlotte area participants annually in 13 adults sports leagues. The SportsLink Sandbox will be home to six lighted sand courts for volleyball, soccer, football and ultimate Frisbee. Crute hopes the location near uptown Charlotte will draw crowds. “We wanted to build a volleyball court next to VBGB as a natural extension of the games we offer here, but just couldn’t afford it,” Taddeo said. “After trying to get beer sponsors, I Googled ‘volleyball leagues’ in Charlotte and came up with SportsLink. I emailed them about this great location next to a cool bar and free parking. It took Christian a few weeks to think about it, but then we met and both immediately saw the future of volleyball right next to VBGB as a thing that has to happen.”
The SportsLink Sandbox will be operational in September in time for some fall league play. With a 10-year lease beginning in 2013, SportsLink plans to host all sand sports league and social play at The Sandbox from March through October.
“Until now, our leagues have played sports at one venue and celebrated at another because of parks and recreation regulations,” Crute said. “Finally, we’ll be able to merge sports and social into one location. Blending the ability to host several sports and events in one should make for a unique facility.”
