Business Beach Battle 2017

Businesses from across Sussex clashed on the Yellowave sand on Wednesday evening for the Active Sussex Business Beach Battle 2017.

The sun cream and shades could be left in the office, as cloud turned to drizzle and eventually heavy rain. However, the hardy players refused to let that dampen spirits; if anything the cheers and laughter intensified as the rain did.

Some of the volleyball was, let’s say, unorthodox; some players looked surprised when their return shot went over the net. But throughout the competition there was some exceptional volleyball played, with exciting rallies, heroic last-ditch saves and inch-perfect finishing shots.

The final was a hotly contested contest between Bishop Sullivan and Expand Executive Search. Despite falling behind early on, Expand Executive Search clawed their way back into the game. But, with less than a minute remaining, Bishop Sullivan turned the screw and edged in front to take the 2017 crown.

The winners were presented with vouchers from Decathlon, who supported the event ahead of their store opening on North Street, Brighton on 12 October.

A special thank you must go to Decathlon, as well as to Yellowave who provide a superb facility and hosted the event brilliantly, in challenging weather.
