Yellowave Beach Sports Venue opened in March 2007. It was set up by Katie Mintram, her husband Spencer Mintram and her dad Alan Randall. As a beach volleyball player Katie was determined to re-create the beach lifestyle she’d experienced after living in Huntington Beach, California and Manly Beach, Australia. Katie, Spencer and Alan set up Yellowave Ltd in 2002. It took 5 years to develop from the first meeting to opening the doors in 2007. It’s the first centre of its kind in the UK with a dedicated team passionate about beach volleyball and sand based sports.
Alan passed away suddenly at his home on Wednesday 10th October, 2012. He was 66 years old. His death came as a huge shock to everyone at Yellowave. Alan’s positivity, lust for life, support and friendliness to everyone he met will never be forgotten. He is greatly missed!
The Yellowave philosophy is reflected in everything we do. We bring the surf culture to sand, offering an alternative active beach lifestyle. We believe our actions should have an onward positive effect.
Respecting others and respecting the environment is key to how we operate. Yellowave is all about getting out there and having a go – getting sandy and having fun. We create a total beach sports experience, open to all, that we hope you wish to try.
