University of Nottingham opens new beach courts

The University of Nottingham have invested and developed a new beach volleyball court facility at the Highfields Sports Complex.

The Highfields Sports Complex already boasts a number of first-class grass football pitches, rugby pitches and a cricket square supported by the Vaughan Parry Williams and Highfields Pavilion, which provide ample changing facilities as well as team meeting rooms. The brand-new sand court adds four 2 V 2 beach volleyball courts configurable to one central show court to the facility.

The beach volleyball court is the first in Nottinghamshire. Director of Sport, Dan Tilley commented;

"The beach volleyball courts add to the quality facilities on offer at the University of Nottingham and will add to the experience for our students, resident athletes and the wider Nottingham community."

The University of Nottingham team trained on the court before the BUCS competition in Bournemouth. They received their best result, bringing home a record 78 BUCS Points. They contributed their success to the amount of time they were able to practice on the new facility.

The facility is open to the public for local teams, schools and clubs to book.
