The UKBT Classic Beach Volleyball competition took place this year from 24th to 27th July, on the main beach, just yards from Aaran Guesthouse along The Esplanade. Despite being snowed under with guests at this time of year, we were able to dash out and grab a few photographs of the proceedings. (We publish this on 18th September – that’s how busy it has been!)

Information from http://www.weymouthbeachvolleyball.co.uk/classic-2/event-details/ tells us that Weymouth hosted the first ever British Beach Volleyball event back in 1983 and has hosted the Classic ever since (more data can be found by clicking the link above). (See our YouTube Channel for related videos).

There was music all day and hundreds of spectators were seated at the grandstand, constructed on the Beach. Local sponsors were Domvs (estate agents). Thousands of people watched (free) as the centre court and outside games continued. Weymouth is probably the best place to see this premier UK sporting competition, with added advantages of plenty of delghtful smal guesthouses and, equally important, great pubs and restaurants, immediately nearby.
