Idaho Beach Sports to bring the sand indoors

Despite this week’s spell of 90 degree weather – it will soon cool down. And the winter months around Boise can be a little less exciting for outdoor lovers – especially if you don’t like the cold.

Idaho Beach Sports hopes to change that in time for winter of 2017.  The company has applied to build a 17,500 square foot building near Fred Meyer on Overland Rd. in Boise.  The concept would bring two large indoor sand volleyball courts and a fitness center to the area.  

The venture’s website already notes services like league volleyball, aerial skills and more.

Filings with the City of Boise show the new building would also include space for outdoor courts on site as well.

Boise’s Planning & Zoning Commission is set to  hear the application in November.
