Up Next: The Edinburgh Grand Slam

Blog Single

It is only 1 more sleep until we are back in action with the Grand Slam series and what an event we have coming up for you! This year has seen us host our first ever UK Beach Tour event in Scotland and now we get to bring you a Grand Slam event in Scotland too! What more could you ask for than that!

Flying the flag high for team Scotland we caught up with the pairing of Katie Barbour and Rachel Morrison. A team that has had some success early on in their partnership and will no doubt be looking to push forward for a top finish in a home event! They shared with us their thoughts on Scotland hosting a Grand Slam event for the first time in the history of the sport!

“We’re super excited to be competing in the 1st UKBT Grand Slam event on home soil this weekend! It will be a fantastic opportunity to showcase our amazing sport with the UK’s top athletes performing right here in the capital. Fingers crossed for some typical Scottish weather 😉☀️. It will be our 1st Grand Slam event as a team we can’t wait to get on the sand & play!!!”

No doubt it will be a great event to watch with real fire power on both the men and women’s side of the event! In order to help all of you live through the tournament with us the team of Barbour/Morrison will also be doing a takeover this weekend on our social media accounts so keep your eyes peeled!

As always thank you to our sponsors of the tour and the local event sponsors for helping make all of this happen!
