TCU announced Thursday it will add women's sand volleyball as a sport beginning in Spring 2015.
Current TCU volleyball coach Prentice Lewis said in a release the sport has been in demand at the Ft. Worth-based campus.
"One of the first questions recruits ask is, 'Are you going to be adding sand volleyball?'," Lewis said in a statement. "Now, I can officially give them the answer they want to hear."
Athletes would be allowed to compete on TCU's already existing indoor volleyball team and the new sand volleyball squad.
TCU's director of athletics said the school is adding the sport to remain compliant with Title IX regulations.
TCU will have 12 women's teams and nine men's teams with the addition of sand volleyball.
