Permanent sand volleyball courts in south end of Myrtle Beach remain in limbo

Myrtle Beach officials are at a standstill on plans to build NCAA-regulation sand volleyball courts on the south end of the city due to issues with the desired site.

Assistant City Manager Ron Andrews said the city has had trouble coming to an agreement with Burroughs & Chapin Co. Inc. about leasing – or possibly purchasing – the land. A spokeswoman for B&C said the company had no comment.

“It’s still a site issue,” Andrews said. “We’re still working with the land owners to come to some type of agreement.”

Myrtle Beach City Council included $300,000 in this fiscal year’s $156.7 million budget to construct the facility at Pebble Beach on vacant land just south of Damon’s Grill on South Ocean Boulevard.
