The Broughty Ferry leg of the Scottish Beach Volleyball Tour took place over one of the most miserable days of the summer.

Around 80 players took part, with many of the foreign competitors in particular suffering in the poor conditions.

The weather faired up over the latter part of the day, however, and it was dry and still for the men’s final, which was won by the Edinburgh pairing of Barry McGuigan and Graham Riddle, who overcame St Andrews’ Colin Paterson and Kilmarnock’s Gordon Welsh two sets to nil.

In the women’s competition, the Dundee and Fife match-up of Lorna Christie and Claire Penny defeated St Andrews girl Eilidh Smith and her Slovakian partner Katerina Palenikova in a hard fought three set match.

Brothers Paul and Tim McPate won the men’s second division tournament, convincingly dispatching the Fife pairing of Ruaridh Stevenson and Colin McGinlay.
