London Beach Volleyball
Anticipating July on the beach
The summer solstice passed, the seaside comes into its own and the month's major events are sandwiched between the big ones: Sandbanks (Poole) over the 6th and 7th to start the month and Weymouth from 26th to 28th to finish it. However, all three London tour venues will be staging events between these dates that are well worth a visit.

While the leading players are in Sandbanks, one of the most popular London events will be taking place in Leyton where SideOut is hosting the All Nations Beach Tournament on the Feel Good Too courts. This attractive and entertaining event has been going on for several years now on the sand and provides a reunion for many who play in the indoor tournament. Full details on www.sideout.co.uk/all-nations-beach

Richmond VC will be holding two three star UK Beach Tour events, one for men and one for women, in Teddingron on Sunday 14th July. Play starts at 9.00 a.m and continues until 6.00 p.m. SideOut is also hosting the SideOut Summer Series, with a men’s and women’s 3-star on Saturday 13th and a mixed 1-star on Sunday 14th.

Deep Dish Beach stages three Beach Tour tournaments the following weekend with a three star event for women on 20th and, next day, two star events for both men and women and a one star mixed event, all at Crystal Palace. The Feel Good Too venue in Leyton will also be busy on the Sunday (21st July), SideOut holding a London Grand Prix four star men's and women's event. For something a bit different, also on the Sunday, Richmond have planned a 4 v 4 mixed event they are calling the RVB World Cup, advertised as suitable for players of all levels.

SideOut continues to be busy over the following weekend organising, on Sunday 28th, two tournaments. They will be a two star Beach Tour event for men and a two star event for women. However, Leyton won't be the only option for players and spectators for a one star mixed tournament, also part of the UK Beach Tour, is planned for Sunday in Teddington organised as usual by Richmond VC,.

The closing date for entering these events is two weeks in advance and can be done through the organiser's web site:
