Imagine the sun is shining, the sky is blue, soft golden sand beneath your feet, and your playing volleyball on the beach. No this is not Bondi beach, Sydney, Olympics 2000 but Southport beach summer 2001! We are a small group of local volleyball players with our own portable net, post and rope lines kit and a number of times last summer and this summer we played on Southport beach and local parkland.
train indoors at the YMCA (Southport) on Wednesday nights at 20:45. So if you would like to play Volleyball and perhaps hit the beaches this summer then come
along and give it a try. Ideally you would have played some volleyball before but beginners are welcome and coaching is provided. The club is open to everyone. The summer period is
when we train, play on the beach and prepare the team for the winter season.
We are entering a team in the Local league (indoors 6 a side) and this runs between October and May each year. Coaching is by qualified coach Karl Stobbs who also plays for Preston in the National Volleyball league Div. 3 (Northern Division).

In the latest tour around the pubs and clubs of Southport and the surrounding area, PCBT Photography thought it bring you a taste of some of the more relaxed establishments to take your fancy.
The first pub is the Crown located on Coronation Walk, in the town
Centre. Hidden away by the adjoining Royal Clifton Hotel and other amusements it is hard to find. The Crown is a little gem for those of you wanting to escape the modern razzmatazz of the immediate area.
Frequented by a number of more mature customers who are friendly and welcoming. The pub also host to a cavalcade of local history in the form of photographic memorabilia and artifacts.
