On the waters edge Margate Volleyball

Preparations are well underway for this weekend's Volleyball event, this apparently is one of only five venues to host the Volleyball England Beach Tour Open.

I'm not too sure but it appears to be in a different location to last year, and I just wonder whether they have taken, all factors into consideration, such as the tide, looking at it, this morning, it appears, that at least part of the fenced off compound, will be underwater at high tide. follyball

Of course I'm probably wrong! This is being organised by Thanet District Council's sports matters team.

Anyway it seems Councillor Shirley Tomlinson cabinet member for environmental services is unperturbed, and is "looking forward to welcoming both players and spectators to the beautiful Main Sands" let's hope the weekend isn't a washout.

The action will consist of a local schools tournament on Friday, with the proper stuff on Saturday& Sunday between 9am & 5pm and finals starting at 2pm Sunday 28th June.

  2. Maybe they hope to combine with a surfing tournament

  3. Are you sure TDC planning department aren't involved

  4. Has brian White had anything to do with it?
