Beach action return for volleyball

North Riding Eagles Volleyball Club will host the popular beach volleyball tournaments that they have previously run.

Whitby is a popular destination for beach volleyball players and the club hopes to include more local people this year.

The club is advertising locally first before they put out the information nationally.

North Riding Eagles have good community links and it is hoped a complete range of people with a mix of ability will feel they can take part.

More local youngsters will be involved this year now that their teachers and youth leaders are attending a volleyball coaching course at Whitby Leisure Centre on Friday April 17.

There will also be a volleyball tournament included at the Whitby Regatta and a local primary schools beach volleyball tournament.

The two open social volleyball tournaments at Whitby are on Sunday May 3 at 10am and Friday June 26 at 7pm. The club is also running community tournaments at Runswick Bay on Fridays May 15 and July 10 at 7pm.
