Oct 29, 2014, SM by the BAY, Proudly announced the opening of it’s latest addition to it’s roster of popular outdoor-themed entertainment and leisure facilities, the only beach-themed, multi-purpose, outdoor sand court in the city has finally arrived and can only be found along SM by the Bay, namely SANDS.
SANDS at SM by the BAY is an ideal facility for outdoor sports such as beach volleyball, beach tennis, and sepak takraw, due to its impressive and spacious court area measuring 28×18 meters. SANDS is also the perfect venue for product launches and beach-themed parties without the hassle of travelling outside the city.
SM by the BAY invited leading local sports celebrities for the ground breaking ceremony of SANDS. At the launch were former DLSU Lady Spikers and now professional volleyball league players Melissa Gohing, Michelle Datuin, Petron Beach Volleyball Champion, Aileen Abuel , and former Shakey’s V-League MVP and now Super Liga pro player Rachel Ann Daquis.
To complete the beach vibe, the event was capped off by vibrant performances by fire dancers and percussionists set against the Manila Bay sunset. The event was made possible with the support of Roxy, Quicksilver, Mikasa, The Lab Gastropub, Oceana and The Roadhouse Manila Bay.
Open for private bookings, corporate and sport-related functions, SANDS is conveniently located at the north area of SM by the BAY grounds. While it has always been a must-visit outdoor entertainment and amusement destination for the entire family, with the addition of SANDS, SM by the BAY now promises a more enjoyable experience for people with active lifestyles.
Here are photos of some local personalities I’ve bump into during the event.
