It is the eighth year that England's elite beach volleyball players have competed on Central Beach.

The free-to-watch event, organised by Great Yarmouth Borough Council and Volleyball England, sees teams battle it out on the sand, with the key showdowns held in a purpose-built grandstand.

The tour is staged at five different beach locations around England's coastline, culminating with the finals in Margate, Kent, to decide who will be crowned National Beach Volleyball Champions of 2013.
