THERE is more fun planned on Kettering’s “beach” as an Urban Beach Volleyball Tournament arrives in the Market Place on Saturday.

Last week, Kettering by The Sea began in the town bringing a touch of the seaside to the town centre, and the fun continues with the volleyball tournament, featuring live music and entertainment.

The event starts at 10am and continues until 8.30pm, with teams competing all day in a number of different competitions.

The opening ceremony will be led by Kettering Cheerleading Academy.

This is followed shortly afterwards by the junior schools tournament, which starts at 10.30am. Medals and presentations for this will take place at 1.30pm.

The secondary schools tournament will start at 2pm, and the medals and presentations due to start at 5pm.

The live music will then continue the entertainment from 5pm–7pm, and an evening volleyball tournament starting at 5.30pm.

The medals and presentation for this will take place at 8.30pm.

Activities are also taking place all day in the sports village, located off the Market Place.

These include a judo display and Wii Sports or why not try your hand at Batack exercise. Refreshments will be available.
