SideOut has 2 new homes!
Late 2018 and early 2019 saw in a new era for SideOut Beach Volleyball Club, with a move to a new London venue and the addition of a second venue on the south coast of England.
Since the 5th of October 2018 and after 6 years at Oliver Road, E10 FL5, the original SideOut Beach in Leyton is now based at the new Feel Good Too Centre at Ive Farm Sports Ground, only a few minutes away from our old home. Our new home has 6 floodlit courts, with world-class equipment, as well as a new cafe with a roof-top terrace and viewing area, showers, changing rooms and much more!
Starting from the 1st of April 2019, SideOut Beach Volleyball Club will have a second base on the Worthing seafront, on the south coast of England. Our new seaside home is currently being refurbished and will be fitted with 2 floodlit courts and new top quality equipment!
