About Us

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!

Our Charities

We are proud to support a number of charities.

Collection Jar
We have a collection jar in our cafe for the wonderful charity Winston’s Wish. Winston’s Wish supports children, young people and their families after the death of a parent or sibling, helping them to make sense of what’s happened and, in time, learn to live with their loss.  As the first charity to establish child bereavement services in the UK, it continues to lead the way in providing specialist support services, offering a wide range of practical support and guidance including face-to-face therapeutic help in individual and group settings, a Freephone National Helpline, online support, publications and training. For more info visit: www.winstonswish.org

Beer Cup Deposit Scheme
Yellowave offers a deposit cup scheme so when purchasing a pint from the Yellowave Craft Beer Bar cups are charged at £1 and the full £1 is refunded when you return your cup. But for anyone who returns the cup but doesn’t claim the £1 back, an amount will be donated by Yellowave to the Sussex Wildlife Trust Kelp Reforestation Project.

Our Philosopy

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.
