St Andrews Beach Volleyball Championships takes place on July 6 and 7 – and there’s £180 prize money available!
One of two “Championship Events” in this summer’s beach volleyball calendar, all 2-a-side teams also get double ranking points. With places at the showcase Glasgow River Festival beach volleyball competition on July 20 still up for grabs, it is an important opportunity for the game’s top players to make a case for their selection.
The trophies for every division winner are from the John McPhail collection.
As well as Men’s and Women’s division one contests, there will also be division two, junior and 4-a-side events. This is a two day event and many competitors sleep on the beach so bring a tent and sleeping bag – or feel free to crash inside the beach marquee. In addition, accomodation is available through St Andrews University on 01334 476161. There will be a social event on the Saturday night after play.
Anyone who wants to play but is struggling for a partner, post on the St Andrews Beach Volleyball Club Facebook.
Located on the stunning West Sands, overlooked by the Old Course’s 18th hole, there could be no more iconic place to play beach volleyball. Get your entry in now!
