If the word volleyball conjures up images of fit, gorgeous people galliavanting on the gulf of Mexico then think again, as Mulberry Cottages would like to inform you of a big event happening in the seaside town of Margate that is set to blow other summer tournaments out of the water (yes… even that one!).
The Margate Masters Volleyball Tournament is now in its sixth year and has been crowned the best event on the Volleyball England Beach tour. Not only that, but the whole event is free to attend and takes place on the gorgeous stretch on sand at Margate beach, in the shadow of the award winning Turner Contemporary Gallery.
This year’s event kicks off on Friday the 6th July with a local schools competition, followed by the main events taking place on Saturday and Sunday. The tournament itself takes place every year in a purpose built venue on the sand itself, and has this year been featured in the Pre-Games training camp brochure, prompting leading players from around the country to descend on our little corner of Kent to limber up for the main event! The tournament also offers the likes of us to try out a little of the game for ourselves with community sessions and live music and commentary help the event go off with a bang!
Why not make a weekend of it and stay with us in one of our gorgeous properties on the Isle of Thanet, visit Tracey Emin’s first exhibition at the Turner Contemporary ‘She lay down deep beneath the sea’ and enjoy all that this charming group of towns has to offer. Just a short way along the coast lies our new property, 1 Royal Cresent, a stunning Regency apartment with sea views and luxurious features. Take the whole gang away as 1 Royal Cresent sleeps eight and is available for the weekend of the 6-8th July for just £52 per person per night!
