Play – sports of all sorts in Greater Yarmouth

Greater Yarmouth is blessed with all sorts of sporting action, whether you want to watch or to play.

Dinghy and yacht racing takes place on the Broads at Rollesby and Filby as well as in the sea off Gorleston with racing most Sundays, the board walk and esplanade are both great viewing sports for spectators. Spectators are also welcome to take their places in the centre court grandstand at the annual beach volleyball competition in June, it’s top-class beach volleyball played out right under your nose.

If you’d rather get in on the action, get your skates on at the indoor roller-skating rink, beat the other team at quasar laser, tee off at one of several seaside golf courses along the Greater Yarmouth coastline, or challenge the kids to an adventured themed 18 hole course. For something a little less energetic but no less exacting, enter the UK’s largest outdoor bowling championship in August, or just play a few woods at the Britannia Bowling Greens.

Round off your day with an evening of sport watching thrilling stock car or greyhound racing from the comfort of the restaurant, high above the racetrack.
