More than 30 teams played in the annual Northern Ireland Beach Volleyball on East Strand Portrush
Portrush, Ireland, June 24, 2013 – More than 30 teams from local schools played in the annual Northern Ireland Beach Volleyball on East Strand Portrush recently.

Braving cold and showers, more than 150 young players produced some exciting volleyball:

Portadown College scored a senior double in the Under 18s, the Boys’ Team beat Dalriada Ballymoney and the Girls’ A Team won their final against Portadown College B.

Coleraine High School proved too strong in the Under 16s final, beating Craigavon Senior High and at Under 14 in an all Armagh final Killicomaine Junior High beat Lurgan Junior High.

The Boys of Carrickfergus Grammar School won the Under 16 title, beating Ulidia Integrated in the final.

Brian Stalker from Cumbria, who was Chief of the Beach Volleyball at the 2014 London Olympics on Horse Guards Parade, visited the Province to lead a weekend Referees’ course for Northern Ireland Volleyball whistlers. British Volleyball Board member Gerard Murphy, who was Ireland’s only International Volleyball Referee, returns to UUJ next weekend for completion of the course with the dozen candidates from clubs across Northern Ireland.
