Chesterfield Cuts Ribbon on New Stonebridge Recreation Center and Richmond Volleyball Club Facility

CHESTERFIELD – Today, Chesterfield County’s Economic Development Authority, Parks and Recreation and the Richmond Volleyball Club officially cut the ribbon on a new facility, located at 200 Karl Linn Drive. The 55,000-square-foot indoor sports facility, built by the EDA, is home to the Richmond Volleyball Club and the Stonebridge Recreation Center.

“We are so glad to celebrate the opening of this new recreation facility,” said Board of Supervisors Chair Dorothy Jaeckle. “This collaboration between the Economic Development Authority of Chesterfield, Chesterfield Parks and Recreation and the Richmond Volleyball Club is an excellent example of a truly successful public-private redevelopment partnership.”

Richmond Volleyball Club, a nonprofit organization dedicated to developing volleyball athletes of all ages, is leasing 50,000 square feet from the EDA, which provides space for eight courts for year-round volleyball programming in Chesterfield. The dedicated space, especially built for volleyball, will also allow Richmond Volleyball Club to host larger tournaments that span the entire region, bringing in more visitors to the metro-Richmond area.

“Richmond Volleyball Club is thrilled to connect with Chesterfield residents,” said Darcy Carroll, Richmond Volleyball Club executive director. “We appreciate the opportunity to collaborate with the EDA and Chesterfield County Parks and Recreation to offer a convenient, premier facility, and comprehensive volleyball programs. As a non-profit, we have a strong outreach program. It is our goal to spread the love of the sport to beginners and competitive players alike.”

Chesterfield County Parks and Recreation will lease the additional 5,000 square feet for the new Stonebridge Recreation Center. The recreation center is the first in the Midlothian area and will primarily host older-adult programming, including classes, workshops, fitness programs and special events. Additionally, during the daytime hours, the county will have access to the entire facility for programs or events. The Stonebridge Recreation Center joins the Bensley and Ettrick centers as the county’s third public recreation facility.

“The Parks and Recreation Department is looking forward to this new amenity,” Parks and Recreation Director Dr. James Worsley said. “This unique partnership with the Richmond Volleyball Club provides the department with access to a multi-use facility. The Stonebridge Recreation Center will have space for recreation programs and events. We are excited about the opportunities to expand services to all members of the community.”

“We are thrilled to have our Parks and Recreation Department partner with the Richmond Volleyball Club to bring such great services and programs to our community,” said Leslie Haley, vice chair of the board of supervisors and Midlothian District representative. “The economic impact on the eastern Midlothian area from the people visiting this facility for daily events and weekend tournaments will be tremendous.”

Art Heinz, Economic Development Authority chair, said, “We are extremely excited about this extraordinary sports facility. It will add to the enthusiasm around Stonebridge and sports tourism throughout the county.”

Richmond Volleyball Club and Chesterfield County Parks and Recreation will be the newest tenants to locate in the Stonebridge area. Stonebridge is a successful mixed-use revitalization development which is home to Kroger Marketplace, one the company’s largest stores in the mid-Atlantic region; the Elements at Stonebridge, Boyd Homes’ luxury apartment community; and the Shops at Stonebridge.
