On 6 July 2013 the BBC’s Breakfast program broadcast a feature on beach tennis. BBC reporter Mike Bushell paid a visit to Brighton on England’s south coast where August’s European Beach Tennis Championships are to be staged.

There he took a look at the game being played, and had a go himself, and spoke with, among others, former professional tennis player Julie Salmon now with Beach Tennis UK and member of the British team set to compete at the second annual World Team Championship in Russia from 18 July, Katy Shaw, about tactics and the games development.

If you were not able to catch this when it aired, it can still be viewed online via the BBC website.
