UKBT Pro Beach Volleyball Tour - Grand Slam Series comes to Bridlington in July

Mon, 01 Jul 2019

On Saturday, 13 and Sunday, 14 July, Bridlington will once again host one of just three stops on the UK Pro Beach Tour - Grand Slam Series (the others are in Weymouth & Bournemouth).

The free event will showcase some of the UK and Europe’s best beach volleyball players, including Olympians and Commonwealth Games athletes, and will be held at Bridlington South Cliff Beach (below the Park & Ride), YO15 3QN between 9am and 5pm on both days.

Councillor Shaun Horton, portfolio holder for tourism, culture and leisure, said: “The event features grandstand seating, music and plenty of top class sporting action, so why not grab a seat and enjoy our showcase beach volleyball event? It’s great that Bridlington is one of just three places in the country where you can get to see this amazing event!”

There will also be a chance to join in with family fun activities on Sunday, 14 July, including the Slackline School and more...

The event is part of the Active Coast Programme which aims to provide opportunities to get active, be healthy and enjoy life on the East Yorkshire coast.
