Local athletes at the fore at national training camp

On the 1st, 2nd and 3rd June, Croyde played host to 24 budding beach volleyball athletes, as the annual girls’ ‘Beach Peaks’ camp came to North Devon. Girls from all over England travelled to Croyde for the three day camp headed up by Head Coach Denise Austin and her coaching team.

The girls participated in two days of intense training as part of a selection and talent-spotting process that the national team goes through every year. In total, 12 local girls attended the camp, including Anaya Evans, Ellie Austin, Lauren Huggins, Millie Constable, Sophie Watts, Lauren Short, Helen Farr, Nicole Short, Holly Coles, Dani Webb, Olivia Webster and Emma Featherstone, confirming local club The Academy of Beach Sports’ reputation as an excellent breeding ground for top-class junior athletes.

The camp culminated for the first time with a junior version of the club’s annual ‘King and Queen of the Beach’ tournament, on a fine, sunny day. It proved to be yet another triumph for Academy athletes, as Evans won the ladies’ competition and Max Chellew won the mens’. Coach Austin commented: ‘the camp was a great success. We had a really high standard of play over the three days and it was fantastic to see some new players coming in, for some of whom it was their first time playing beach volleyball coming from and indoor background. Hopefully we can continue to develop this talent over the years to come!’
