Olympic Legacy Sand Courts

FIFA BEACH SOCCER WORLD CUP

2012 London Olympic Legacy Sand Courts

The legacy of the Olympics 2012 will live on in the sands from the beach volleyball court that is being built at Horse Guard Parade for the Worlds most prestigious International Event. Volleyball England and Sport England have teamed up with Beach Events to distribute the Olympic sands post event, and to create permanent beach volleyball courts across London that will ensure that beach volleyball continues to be played long after the memories of the Olympics 2012 have faded.

The sand courts are to be made large enough to accommodate all of the beach sports with beach soccer being highlighted.
John Hawkins MD of Beach Events and England Beach Soccer commented – “ We are proud to be involved in such an instrumental project that will help to seriously raise the profile of beach sports in the UK. Beach volleyball’s popularity is soaring and we hope that with the increasing opportunities to play beach sports that Beach Soccer will soon be enjoying a similar position”.

Local governments are currently being approached to establish where the most appropriate sites are to create these new Olympic Legacy Super Sand Courts.

There is no doubt that with the continued interest in beach sports, the inclusion of beach volleyball in the Olympics and the construction of these legacy builds, that beach sports are here to stay and can only continue to grow in both awareness and stature.
