A big weekend of Scottish beach volleyball reaches a finale today with the crowning of the Scottish Beach Tour champions and the finals of the men’s European Championships event. Matches start at 9am and spectating is free.
Portobello Beach has hosted a celebration of beach volleyball in Scotland over the last three days, ahead of the sports inclusion in the Commonwealth Games for the first time on the Gold Coast in 2018.
Today the action reaches a finale with the semi-finals and finals in the men’s European Beach Volleyball event, alongside the Scottish Beach Volleyball National Tour Finals and its 2v2 National Tour event. The Scottish Beach Tour champions will be crowned this afternoon after the centre court finals.
In the 2×2 National Tour event look out for Scotland women’s No.1 pair Lynne Beattie & Mel Coutts who will be playing as part of their preparations to qualify for the Commonwealth Games. And in the men’s European event Scotland’s Senior Men, Seain Cook and Robin Miedzybrodzki, are on a mission to collect as many points as possible to contribute to their world ranking as they too attempt to qualify for next year’s Commonwealth Games.

Refreshments, food and music will accompany the beach volleyball making it a great day out for all the family.
Matches start at 9am.
