New beach volleyball courts installed


TWO new full-size volleyball courts have been put up on Bridlington’s beaches in a bid to get more people playing the sport.

The semi-permanent facilities have been located near the foreshores office and below the park and ride car park, and will be officialy launched on Sunday, between noon and 3pm.

There will be an exhibition with top beach volleyball players, free taster sessions and some giveaway goodies by England Volleyball at the official launch.

Coun Jane Evison said: “This is a great opportunity to attract tourists and locals to our glorious beaches in the East Riding.

“As well as being a fun sport to play, volleyball also promotes healthy activity amongst all ages.

“Assuming the weather is lovely, this event should provide lots of laughs and an enjoyable day out for all.”

Equipment is available for hire on site, however you can bring your own equipment if you would prefer to do so. The courts will be up throughout the whole summer period and are free to use.
