UK to get influx of beaches

London - Britain is about to get an influx of beaches.

More than 5 000 tons of sand were trucked to the Horse Grounds to construct the beach volleyball courts.

It's all got to go somewhere when the competition is over, and there is a plan to bring beach courts to all corners of Britain.

Volleyball officials say that there is enough sand to furnish 40 courts around Britain.

They also have plans to build an indoor practice facility in hopes of capitalising on the momentum generated by games.
