Life's a beach

Challenge your friends to a game of beach volleyball by the canal

Enjoy a rare opportunity to play outdoor beach volleyball in the city this Summer. If volleyball isn’t your thing, badminton is also available to play! 

Volleyballs, rackets and shuttle cocks will be provided, and can be collected at the reception of number 5 Merchant Square. No booking is required, just head to the reception to collect your equipment and sign in. The beach will be yours for one hour, and you must then return the borrowed items to the reception at the end of your game.It’s free to play but a deposit will be required at the reception to ensure you don’t nick our kit. 

Additional Info

The beach is located in front of 5 Merchant Square by North Wharf Road.

You will have the beach for one hour after signing in. If the area is in use, you can reserve a space at the reception.

If the weather is bad, the area will be unavailable for use.

Please don’t hang on the net as this will cause it to break.

Badminton can be played in teams of up to 8 people.

Please be careful with our equipment. If you break or damage anything, you may be asked to replace it.
