Help the Beach Academy Players to compete at World U21 Championships
Ellie Austin & Anaya Evans, have been selected to represent England at the FIVB World Championships U21 in Lucerne Switzerland from the 11th-16th May.
The pair who have been playing together off and on since they attended Georgeham School at ages 7 & 10 are really happy to be back playing together again. “It feels just so easy and relaxed being on the court with Ellie again” Evans comments after they have started their pre event training with before and after school practices.
Evans who has represented England both Senior and Junior on the beach has had three years ahead of Austin who in her first International is really excited to get going on the sand after a great indoor season which saw her gain her first indoor international caps at the UK School Games and in the NEZVA International.
The World U21 Championships is a completely self funded event, so the pair will be fund raising for the next three weeks ahead of their trip. If you would like to help please click on the donate button found on the clubs website. Thanks for all your support.
