Junior UKBT: Welcome to the future
19th April 2021
The UK Beach Tour has announced dates for the first ever UKBT Junior Tour, which will be made up of over 40 events across the UK, split into U14 & U18 categories.
Jake Sheaf, UKBT Director, said: "We couldn't be more excited to provide more opportunities for our next generation of players to compete on the UKBT.
"We will continue to work to increase the number of locations and have as big an outreach as possible. Thanks to all the individuals and organisers who have helped to get this off the ground and we look forward to a fantastic debut year!"
Players who compete in the Junior UKBT events will earn ranking points that will count towards their National and Champions Race Ranking:
- National Ranking: A player's top eight results over the past 365 days (includes UKBT and FIVB points).
- Champions Race: All of a player's results over the current season from UKBT events only.
The rankings will be displayed on the UKBT website, separated into gender and U14s & U18s.
UKBT Junior Championships
The UKBT Junior Championships will once again take place at Sandbanks Beach from the 3rd-4th July. The event will host four age groups: U12s, U14s, U16s and U18s.
Entries will be limited to the top ranked players only (due to the event being downsized because of Covid). Therefore it will be important for players to compete in events leading up to the Championships. More details will be announced by UKBT in the coming weeks.
