Bridlington will once again be a part of the Go Spike campaign, which aims to provide more opportunity to play and get involved in beach volleyball, on the beaches of the East Riding.

The resort will once again be providing two full size semi-permanent beach volleyball courts, located along Bridlington’s South Beach, one in front of the foreshores office near to the Spa theatre and the other below the Park and Ride area at South Shore.

Last year the courts were very popular and attracted over 3,000 users, and building on the success of the 2012 beach sports programme in the East Riding, a further addition in the next few weeks will be a new beach soccer court.

Players can arrive with their own equipment, or hire it on site. The courts are free of charge to use and will be up throughout the whole summer period.

For those wishing to learn how to play the game, this year there will be weekly coaching sessions every Thursday from 4.30pm to 6pm, starting today, all the way through the summer season.

These Sportivate sessions are free of charge for young people, aged between 14 and 25.
