Having a ball at Saltburn
Children from the Whitby area, as well as some adults with special needs from Botton Village, were treated to a training session with a difference on Saltburn beach last Friday.
Team GB volleyball players Chris Gregory and Jake Sheaf were on the sand joining in with the teams who were training for the Whitby Seafoods’ Classic Beach Volleyball Tournament which took place on Saturday.
The British players, speaking ahead of the tournament, said: “Tomorrow we hit the road to join our awesome partner Whitby Seafoods in their glorious home in Whitby for beach volleyball and more on their beautiful shores! Can’t wait to get up there and get involved.”
The sessions are run regularly by North Ridings Eagles’ coach Anthony Laffan
