Further to the report of GoSpike entitled “Development of
beach volleyball courts” (…) ‘In continental
Europe, sand courts are provided in many local inland parks for the
casual player and local leagues. The growing interest in the UK has
led to a demand for the provision of similar public inland courts
There are numerous online guides available in relation to creation of sand courts at a relatively low cost – see for example
If there is a facility which Warwickshire community could benefit from it is the sand court. Warwickshire is a home to some 95 football teams (https://www.teamstats.net/teams/football/warwickshire), 10 volleyball clubs (https://directory.volleyverse.com/region/warwickshire/), 2 handball clubs, and Warwickshire County Netball Association. It is worth noting that the nearest sand court is either at Loughborough University or in London, both of which are much outside of Warwickshire. The Warwickshire based (and not only) clubs and teams could benefit from the sand court in preparation for domestic and international tournaments, as well as for leisure.
By creating sand court Warwickshire would give people in our community the opportunity to engage with sports they love, being incredibly important in a post-COVID day to day life. There is overwhelming evidence of the positive effect that sport activity can have on both physical and mental health. It is council’s responsibility to create services which promote good health. Creating sand court would be an excellent way of showcasing this responsibility.
