History of Beach Sports in Great Britain
Beach sports have a long and varied history in Great Britain. The origins of beach sports are said to have begun in the late 19th century, as a way for holiday makers to keep themselves entertained and for local crews of fishermen and dockworkers to participate in a friendly competition. Beach sports quickly grew in popularity, and it is estimated that by the 1920s, up to 5 million people were regularly participating in them throughout Great Britain.
In the following decades, beach sports continued to evolve and develop. The 1950s saw a boom in the popularity of beach sports, with informal beach tournaments becoming popular and attendant crowds of up to 20,000 spectators. By the 1960s, beach sports had been firmly established in Britain, and the first official British Beach Sport Association was established in 1964.
Today, beach sports are one of the most popular forms of outdoor recreation in the UK, with millions of people participating in beach sports each year. There are many beach sport events and festivals held throughout the country at different times of the year. The Annual British Beach Sports Festival is an iconic event that celebrates the culture, history and diversity of beach sports in Great Britain. The event is attended by thousands of participants and spectators each year, and features a range of competitions, activities and events for both amateur and professional beach athletes.
Events at the Annual Festival
Each year, the Annual Festival brings together beach sport enthusiasts and vacationers to celebrate the best of British beach sports. With activities ranging from Beach Volleyball to Beach Football, and even Beach Rounders and Beach Handball, there’s an event for everyone regardless of age or skill.
Starting with Beach Volleyball, two teams made up of four or six players each play against each other on a designated playing area. A net is used to divide the area, and players use the net to pass the volleyball back and forth in an attempt to score as many points as possible and outscore their opponents.
Beach Football is similar to regular football, however the playing area is usually much larger and sand is used as the playing surface, instead of grass. As in regular football, two teams of 11 players compete to score a goal in the opposing team’s goal.
Beach Rounders is played between two teams of four players each. There are six bases located in the playing area, and teams take it in turns to move around the bases while their opponents try to get them ‘out’ by hitting the ball to the opposing teams keeper. Once all players have made a full round, they score a point.
Lastly, there is Beach Handball which is very similar to regular handball. Two teams of seven players each compete against each other, and the goal is to throw a handball into the opposing team’s goal. This event is usually the most popular event of the festival.
