Those looking for fun in the sand don’t need to hit the coast. This east side beach volleyball and soccer complex features league play on Monday, Thursday and Friday. Leagues are co-ed and same sex, and people can either go to watch, or sign up and play. The Sandbox sells water, food and cokes, but customers can bring their own booze. The growing business will soon offer sand soccer and flag football. Customers can also reserve the courts for events like weddings or birthday parties. 7414 Gateway Blvd. E., 915-276-3794; thesandboxep.com.
