UKBT Junior Championships Round Up

Blog Single

Beach volleyball in the UK once again demonstrated how bright it’s future is following the UKBT Junior Championships that were held on Sandbanks Beach last weekend. The Championships were cancelled in 2020 and despite limited training and competition for our young athletes, it was amazing to see the level on show through all age groups.


The Championships hosted an under 12, 14, 16 and 18 division with over 70 teams competing throughout the weekend. The weather demonstrated the true British Summer with sun, rain and wind over the course of the weekend. Despite this, we still had unbelievable  finals and ultimately crowned our new UKBT Junior Champions!


A massive thank you to all of the players who attended, the parents who travelled the length of the country to be there cheering all weekend, Deep Dish for organising and also the volunteers who battled through in all weather conditions to ensure the event ran smoothly and gave our next generation of players a fantastic experience!
