Chero­kee OKs sand vol­ley­ball at park

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - - COUNTY BY COUNTY - DAVID IBATA FORTHE AJC

The Chero­kee County Board of Com­mis­sion­ers has given the green light to ad­ding three sand vol­ley­ball courts to Badger Creek Park in Can­ton.

The Chero­kee Soc­cer As­so­ci­a­tion has an agree­ment with the county, dat­ing to Novem­ber 2010, touse Badger Creek­for soc­cer, staff said in a re­port to com­mis­sion­ers. Any other use of the soc­cer fields must have writ­ten county board ap­proval.

S3 Vol­ley­ball ap­proached the soc­cer group and the county, seek­ing to con­struct, main­tain and pro­gram three sand courts at the park.

The group would con­struct the courts in a lo­ca­tion that will not im­pact the soc­cer as­so­ci­a­tion’s use of the park, staff said. No county funds are sought.

“The county cur­rently has no sand vol­ley­ball courts in our parks,” staff said. “This project would al­low Chero­kee County res­i­dents an op­por­tu­nity to par­tic­i­pate in sand vol­ley­ball with­out hav­ing to travel out­side the county to do so.”

Con­struc­tion of the courts will be sub­ject to the re­view and ap­proval of the county.

S3, the South­ern Se­lect Sand Vol­ley­ball Club, seeks to “pro­duce and train a very se­lect and suc­cess­ful group of beach vol­ley­ball play­ers,” ac­cord­ing to the web­site of the Cartersville-based or­ga­ni­za­tion. “We are the only vol­ley­ball court in the state fully ded­i­cated only to the sand game.”
