Welcome to Beach Volleyball School!

Founded in our iconic home base in Croyde by England beach volleyball legend Denise Austin, we offer beach volleyball lessons throughout the summer to all ages and abilities.

Our team of highly trained coaches run beach volleyball lessons every day at Croyde. We are also able to offer private bookings and events-whether it’s a children’s birthday, a stag or hen do, a corporate day out, or a fun tournament. We can organise it, staff it, bring the equipment and provide the venue. We also run bespoke events at a venue of your choice (please just email.)

Whatever you choose to do with us, we promise it will be fun-filled and you will leave wanting more!

About Us

A bit of our history…

Beach Volleyball School was founded in 2015 in Croyde, Devon by Denise Austin, a former International Pro Beach Volleyball Player and Volleyball England Staff Tutor. The idea behind the business was to bring the brilliant sport of beach volleyball to those visiting the wonderful beaches of North Devon. Denise realised that lots of people wanted some lessons and to give the sport a go in Croyde, but no-one was offering that! That’s where Beach Volleyball School was born.

Who are our sessions for…

Whether you’re young or old, our goal is for everyone to enjoy learning and playing beach volleyball in a healthy, friendly and supportive environment. We pride ourselves on making sure our beach volleyball lessons are fun, fast-paced and provide great value!

As well as running drop-in beach volleyball lessons for the public, we also run bespoke beach volleyball events. So whether it’s a hen or stag party, a birthday bash, corporate event or a friends reunion, we can put something together for you! Just get in touch with us via our email.

Our philosophy…

Our philosophy is based on the belief that everyone can have a go at our beautiful game. We have years of experience running training for players of all different ages and abilities. We’d love you to come and give us a try!

Please get in contact with us as soon as possible. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee you a refund if you cancel or rearrange your session within 24 hours of the start time.

Are there changing facilities?
