The facility provides a dedicated sports court area suitable for beach volleyball, football, handball and cricket. It offers changing provision, floodlighting and a decked seating area to enjoy the action from. There is also an electricity point so you can play music too (BBQ's allowed after 6pm).

There's lots of ways to get involved.

  • Hire a court with friends or family and simply pay and play
  • Block book a number of sessions over a number of weeks.
  • Hire includes the equipment needed to play the sport.
  • Book a court for your school, company or organisation.

The facility has been built and funded by Thanet District Council along with grants from Sport England via Volleyball England's Beach Volleyball Capital Investment Initiative and Kent County Council Sport, Leisure and Physical Activity Service.

It is the result of recent success achieved with the Margate Masters National Beach Volleyball Championships winning 'best tour event' in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.
