People in Cardiff can enjoy playing beach volleyball on spacious sand courts in Victoria Park.
The court is owned by Cardiff Beach Volleyball club founded 25 years ago at Barry Island, moving to Canton, Cardiff four years ago.
Carl Harwood, the founder of the club, said they played beach volleyball at a public beach which is miles away from the town before he applied to Cardiff Council for another place to form the beach volleyball centre.
“They got in touch with us and said there was an old bowling green in the Victoria Park,” Carl Harwood said. “As a child, I grew up in this park and I knew this place very well, so when they showed it to me, I jumped at the chance.”
Located in the residential area, the beach volleyball club, which includes around 150 members now, has encouraged many local people to join them by providing varieties of courses and trainings for different age groups.
David Panah, the coach of the club, said: “The reason I joined this club is because of good facilities and lovely people. Not to mention this is the only place to play beach volleyball in Cardiff.”
Currently Cardiff Beach Volleyball club has also become a training centre for 2022 Commonwealth Games, which will be held in Birmingham.
