Beach volleyball court approved at Farnley Academy

Council planners have given the green light to build a new beach volleyball court at Farnley Academy.

The 900 sq metre court will be built on an existing sports pitch which the school says is unusable due to the steep bank on site. 

A report accompanying the application says the school would like to introduce beach volleyball to the curriculum and have the opportunity to work closely with Volleyball England, the national governing body for indoor volleyball, sitting volleyball and beach volleyball.

The report added: “The proposed scheme seeks to improve the available sports facilities in the area and give students access to a specialised sport.”

Plans also include a two metre-wide timber decking, along with the installation of a 3.4-high V-Mesh fencing and 1m-high ball stop netting installed above.

A council planning officer’s report approving the application said: “The proposed scheme seeks to improve the available sports facilities in the area and give students access to a specialised sport.”

The plans can be viewed in full here.
