Sports at the Beach opens new indoor sports academy


Originally conceived as a year-round destination where baseball players, teams and coaches could work out, receive instruction and training, and attend skill camps, the Indoor Academy at Sports at the Beach (SATB) in Georgetown — new this spring — has turned into something much bigger.
The 8,400-square-foot heated indoor facility is outfitted with all-purpose rubber mat flooring, retractable batting cages, basketball nets, pickleball courts, peg climbing and a full-time staff to coordinate events. Sports at the Beach has also extended their sports area to include 13,000 square feet of new outdoor courts for basketball and pickleball.
Event activities at the facility are evolving representatives noted, but will include youth and adult programs for baseball, softball, basketball, soccer, dodgeball, pickleball, yoga, fitness programs, cornhole tournaments, various summer camps, league sports and more.
Additionally, Sports at the Beach has also extended their pool hours to every day from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Pool memberships for families or individuals are available by visiting the administrative offices.
“Our mission is to provide community members of all ages and skill levels a year-round destination to train, play, learn, teach and share their passions for new sports and activities. Our love for sports and encouraging healthy lifestyles motivates us every day, and creating an opportunity for our younger community members to find their love of sports is close to our heart,” said owner Pete Townsend.
The facility is seeking instructors and taking requests for leagues for all sports and encouraging community members to provide feedback and suggestions.
“If you can play it indoors, we want it on our schedule,” said Scott Townsend.
