Ramsgate’s old and new Mayors

On Friday 5 July Thanet District Council’s Sport Matters team will be holding a new local beach volleyball competition, the ‘Beach Volleyball Cup’.  
This will take place on Margate Main Sands starting at 5.30pm until 9.30pm.  It is open to teams of two players of all abilities with a maximum of 10 places in both men’s and woman’s heats. For more information on taking part please visit for an application form or contact the Sport and Leisure department on 01843 577 032.
The Beach Volleyball Cup is a knockout competition that will showcase Thanet’s sporting talent as well as offer a fun and challenging activity to participate in.
The winners of the ‘Beach Volleyball Cup’ will then come back to take part in an exhibition match during the Finals of Margate Masters on Sunday 25 August where they will have the experience of playing on a national standard volleyball court in front of a cheering crowd.
It is a great chance to get involved and play a part at this year’s National Beach Volleyball Finals alongside European and UK champions and in front of hundreds of spectators.
Councillor Iris Johnston, Cabinet Member for Community Services, said: “Thanet District Council offers a wide range of sporting opportunities to local people in Thanet.

"As we approach this summer's National Beach Volleyball Finals, which will be the biggest Beach Volleyball competition in the UK this year, the council's Sport and Leisure department is offering local people the opportunity to take part in the Beach Volleyball Cup".

  1. The headline doesn't make sense on this - but what is the new Mayor doing? Seems to be just the councillors passing the title around amongst themselves in Buggins Turn.
