Broughty Ferry Championships

The 2016 Scottish Beach Volleyball tour continues this weekend with the Broughty Ferry Championships in Tayside.

The Broughty Ferry Championships are the midway point of a tour that showcases Scotland’s best beach volleyball players.  For a flavour of what to expect take a look at this highlights reel from the CEV Beach Volleyball Continental Cup held at Portobello in 2014.

Today’s action features men, women’s and junior pairs all playing for points, with the senior pairs playing for coveted FIVB world ranking points as well as beach tour points.  Alongside over 35 junior teams have entered the tour, a massive increase on last year and a reflection of the development work Scottish Volleyball is doing at grass-roots level.  Players will gather points across all 5 tour dates with the overall winners to be crowned at the end of the season in August.

Broughty Ferry (home of DC Thomson & Desperate Dan) is home to a lovely beach where the battle for top placings takes a whole new turn and players up their game for the Dundee leg of the Scottish Tour.  And the fun doesn’t stop with the beach volleyball action with refreshments, music and food available throughout the day!

Matches start at 10am.

Admission is free to all spectators.

Car parking is available at the beach, which is also accessible via a 15 minute walk from the town centre.

The 2016 Scottish Beach Volleyball Championships continue on 30th and 31st July with the Troon Championships.
