It's Grand Slam Time!

Blog Single

The UKBT Grand Slams are almost upon us and we couldn’t be more excited to once again be gracing the sands of some of the most beautiful beaches in the UK to watch our nation’s top athletes battle it out!


We have 5 locations this season with some BRAND NEW additions:



  • Weymouth – Weymouth Beach

  • Edinburgh – Portobello Beach

  • Cardiff – Barry Island

  • London – Leyton

  • Bournemouth – Bournemouth Pier


Entry to the events will mostly be based on your UKBT seeding points (top 4 results), with some wildcards up for grabs as well. All information for each event can be found in the section below. Entry lists will be confirmed on the Tuesday 2 weeks prior to the event.


The first 4 events will host 16 teams per gender and all lead up to the finals in Bournemouth which will host just 8 teams per gender. At the first 4 events the winners will automatically be awarded a ticket to the finals.
