London Beach Volleyball
Beach volleyball for youngsters in Leyton
"Beach" is getting bigger. Anticipation of the European Federation's Continental Cup, a beach volleyball tournament in which a two team pair team takes on three other European countries with Olympic qualification a possible outcome, is building interest in Leyton. The new Feel Good Too sports ground is part of the attraction. It will be there at 1 Pavilion Walk, E10 5UE that England's men will challenge Switzerland, Armenia and Bulgaria and the country's women will take on France, Belarus and Northern Ireland on 25th and 26th May.

So many youngsters have expressed an interest in trying out the sport that Leyton sports specialists SideOut have decided to run junior sessions on Sundays from 10 to 11 a.m., starting on Sunday 2nd June. The coaches will be Alex Cheveau and Gabi Kontopoulos-Medrika. There is still room for a few more and interested young people (ages 6-10, 11-16 with 17+ going to an adult group) are asked to contact Alex or Gabi on info@sideout.co.uk.

The London Volleyball Association's Junior Volleyball Officer, Elsa Meserlian said, "I will be running the fun zone to recruit children for the sessions during the Continental Cup event." That will get the junior beach volleyball sessions properly kicked off in London.

Delighted with the news, Gabi told us, "We would like to promote it at the Continental Cup tournament and run some taster sessions or a mini camp in the half term week of 27-31st June." Interested? Contact Gabi on the email address above.

If you want to watch the international matches, play starts on Saturday at 10.00 am and on Sunday at 9.00 am. Entry is free but access to the stands is limited to 2,000 and, to avoid disappointment from the "first come, first served" entrance system access can be assured by getting a ticket in advance from Volleyball England.
