The venue and some history

Bridlington is a seaside coast in the East Riding of Yorkshire and is situated on the East Coast of England.

With history as an important Roman port and also the site of a medieval priory that can still be visited today, the town was (and still is) home to fleets of fisherman and is now most commonly known as a resort for people to get away and relax.

The beach volleyball event is being hosted on Bridlington Beach itself, with support from Skyball Beach Volleyball Club, which is based in the town.

The club regularly hosts UK Beach Tour events each summer and will stage the Yorkshire Series and Four-Star Northern Open this year. 

Although the South Beach, where volleyball is played does not have a postcode, the postcode for the nearby Princess Mary Promenade is Y015 3LG. 

England last hosted a NEVZA event in 2018 when the NEVZA U17 and U19 Championships (indoor) were contested at the National Volleyball Centre in Kettering. 

Prior to that, the NEVZA Senior Beach Volleyball Championships were held in Bournemouth in 2016.
