Whitby’s volleyball club North Riding Eagles invite people to have some fun on the beach playing social volleyball this Sunday (May 3).

The fun starts at 10am when people can go and register as a team or individuals can go down and link up with others on the day.

There is coaching available and a warm welcome with North Bay Cafe putting on a barbecue.

The aim is for people to have a good time and it is a Volleyball for All tournament which means all ages and abilities are catered for.

It is another bank holiday sporting event that people will enjoy watching and cheering the players on from the promenade or North Cafe terrace.

Eagles coach Anthony Laffan said: “Beach volleyball is guaranteed to have you laughing as a player or spectator.

“So many things go wrong when trying to control a ball in the sea breeze, it will be thrills and spills all the way.”
