When asked what a player could do to improve their game in the off-season, Northern Valley Volleyball coach Doyle Tracy said "play beach volleyball." So Greg & Candy Wing built an NCAA sand court in their backyard for daughter Lindy, an incoming freshman at North Marion High School.
Greg Wing, owner of All-Ways Excavating USA did his research online and built one of the finest sand courts in the state of Oregon next to the family pool. "When we vacation in Mexico, our family loves playing beach volleyball. So I just figured now was the perfect time to build our own court. 10 foot perimeter allows for some aggressive play. I purchased the beach sand from a company in Florence. We've got 24 inches of sand out there. That was the biggest investment. Our daughter and her partner finished third at Seaside, so it was fun to watch her excel."
