Rock up and Play is back for 2023/24

It’s been a big dodgy weather wise so we’ve held off the start date.

But we’re counting on the sunshine from here on in, and are kicking off our usual Rock up and Play sessions from Monday 13th November 6pm.

They’ll go every Monday (weather dependent, updates on Facebook) until Xmas and then start up again in 2024.

You don’t need a partner or even to have played before, all levels and ages and genders welcome – we’ll teach you some basics and join you in to teams.

$5 per person – cheap fun in the sun we reckon 🙂

Rock up and Play is back for 2022

Starting a week earlier than planned, because the weather is so good, we’ll be down at the sand at 6pm tonight – Monday 14th November.

Anyone, any age, any level of experience is welcome. No team or partner required.

Winter Rock up n Play!

Due to popular demand, we’re going to continue running the Rock up and Play sessions during the autumn/winter this year.

Obviously, a change of day, due to Daylight saving, so we’re going to give Sunday afternoons a crack at 3.30pm. We’ll kick off on Sunday 11th April.

Obviously number two, the weather might suck, so please keep an eye on our Facebook page for cancellations and we’ll endeavour to make a call on this as early as we can, but no later than 3.15pm on a Sunday

And some advice for playing beach volleyball in the winter; wear some old socks to keep your feet warm. Or you can go pro and buy some sand socks online.

See you on the sand this winter!
