Crosby Beach will welcome over 40 players from all over the country

Liverpool will host its final Beach Volleyball tournament of the season this Saturday 17 July. Free for spectators, this is your chance to experience the high-energy and excitement of beach volleyball live on Crosby Beach.

The Crosby Beach Series is presented by Everton Volleyball, and features 24 teams from all over the country -  12 teams each in the women's and men's categories. Everton Volleyball have already hosted two other competitions this Summer as part of the series, a men's and women's tournament in May and a mixed tournament in June, both of which were sell-out events. 

Lili Molnar is a nutritionist from Hungary living in Liverpool for over five years and has played volleyball all her life. Lili recently came as a runner-up with fellow Hungarian partner Virag Farkas at the Yorkshire Series hosted in Bridlington Beach earlier in the Summer, and has won both ladies and mixed tournaments in previous Crosby series events.

I’m really excited to watch the final tournament on Saturday. The other events were full of energy and a great atmosphere and I can’t wait for the next one. It is such a boost for all the volleyball players in Liverpool to have a high-level competition hosted close to home” said Molnar.

The tournaments in Crosby have drawn a lot of attention from passersby on the beach, and quickly gained support from local Liverpool City Region businesses such as restaurant Yogee Treats and lifestyle store The Slower Space. “We are happy to support the event and happy to see it turning out a success. We love to support the community and to see our local athletes shine in the competition” said Sean Kelly, owner of Yogee Treats.

The Crosby Beach Series was the first official beach tournament organised by Everton Volleyball, with the purpose of establishing regular beach volleyball competitions in the North West and fundraising to support the club throughout the indoor season starting in September. Chairwoman of Everton Volleyball, Valeria Romero, said “We are delighted with the success of the beach tournaments. As a new club we are very excited to see the interest from the Liverpool and Sefton community and can’t wait to see volleyball grow even more in the North West.

Matches will begin at 9:30 am and admission is free. The courts will be located in front of the Crosby Leisure Centre with games due to be played throughout the day and the finals at around 4:00 pm. 

This will be the last Beach Volleyball tournament hosted by Everton Volleyball in Crosby this Summer but the indoor season will start in September and will be hosted at Litherland High School.
