[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The fourth leg of the Volleyball England Beach Tour (VEBT) will be taking place at Bridlington South Cliff Beach (below the Park & Ride) on Saturday and Sunday 6 and 7 August.

The nation’s top beach volleyball players will be battling it out to gain entry into the National Tour Finals in Margate on 20/21 August.

The VEBT is the country’s premier beach volleyball and is staged at some of the best beach locations across the country. It is expected that a number of the participants will include ex Team GB Olympians and other international athletes.

Councillor Richard Burton, portfolio holder for civic wellbeing and culture, said: “We are delighted this event is nearly here and we look forward to welcoming some of the country’s elite beach volleyball players to Bridlington.

“This event fits perfectly with our Active Coast vision which aims to provide residents and visitors with the opportunity to take part in year round leisure and cultural activity on the East Riding coastline. It also enables us to showcase our beautiful coastline and award winning beaches whilst watching a premier sporting event.”

The event will take place between 9.00am and 5.00pm on both days with free entry to watch the matches, grandstand seating for viewing and a free prize draw for a signed volleyball from Ben Pipes, (London 2012) GB Volleyball Captain.

In addition, on Saturday 6 August, Ben Pipes will be conducting a free coaching clinic for all ages at 1.30pm on the Go Spike Beach Volleyball courts on the beach, providing guidance on playing the game and an explanation of the rules.
