King and Queen of the Beach Ancestry Tree

Please send details of any missing previous Kings and Queens of the Beach

The King and Queen of the Beach began in 1996 as a small end of summer event when Denise and Nick Austin moved into their chalet in the village, with a phone line and address the event was born.

“Up until then we lived in a camper van for seven summers so we were of no fixed abode. It was an awesome summer so we wanted to just keep playing. It was all very last minute but I wont ever forget that first year. The Goldcoast event started a few years later and the event grew from one court to 24! Our club has grown because of the Goldcoast, it the single biggest fundraiser – and from having only me and my Nick competing we now have approx 150 club players who have grown up locally playing. We run junior events, and gifted and talented programmes to grow our club and every person who has played in the event supports that by paying to enter so thanks everyone!”
