Good times: beach fun

First published in News by

Sun-seekers can stay in the borough instead of visiting the coast after free beach sessions were created for the public.

Beach volleyball courts have been opened at Teddington Sports Centre, which will also hold beach-themed arts, crafts and games for young children throughout August weekdays.

Richmond Council’s sports team and the London Marathon Charitable Trust invested £50,000 into the volleyball project, which saw the old tennis and netball courts replaced.

Councillor Meena Bond, cabinet member for sport, says: "The council has brought the beach to Richmond this summer so our young people can enjoy free beach fun on their doorsteps.

"The beach volleyball courts will bring so much pleasure to so many people across the borough."

50 grand to swap one well regarded summer sport for a faddish one. Most would struggle to name a player or team, whereas practically anyone could name a dozen tennis players.

Or to put it another way - 25+ houses of council tax went into this. Ridiculous.
