The only multi-purpose, beach-themed, outdoor sand court has finally opened in the heart of the city with the launch of Sands at SM by the Bay. Last October 29, SM by the Bay Mall of Asia proudly announced the opening of its latest addition to Manila’s premiere destination for leisure and lifestyle activities.
The impressive and spacious sand court measures around 28×18 meters and simply ideal for volleyball, beach tennis, sepak takraw, and any other outdoor activities. Being within the city, it is the definitely a perfect venue for beach-themed parties, product launches, and other events. No need to travel hours outside of Manila!
with my gorgeous blogger friends
When we arrived at the event, my blogger friends and I were awed to see a former regular mall ground transformed into an inviting beach party.
The summer vibe was completed with live percussion music, belly dances, and fire dances.
The ceremonial toss
Due to the increasing popularity of volleyball and beach volleyball in the Philippines, professional volleyball league players were invited to christen the newly opened sand court. Among those present were Melissa Gohing, Michelle Datuin, Aileen Abuel, and Rachel Ann Daquis.
Both teams played impressively, with the former DLSU Lady Spikers winning the game.
Conveniently located at the north area of the SM by the Bay grounds, Sands at SM by the Bay promises a more entertaining experience for the family with its latest addition.
Sands at SM by the Bay is now open for corporate and sport-related functions and private bookings. For inquiries and reservations, please contact at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow their Facebook page to receive latest updates at facebook.com/smbythebay.
