Rugby club The Big Stones from Havelte, in consultation with the Survival Havelte Foundation and the Havelte IJsvereniging, is building an actual beach rugby field in the central area of the ice rink. With this, the club wants to increase the offer to its members and invest in the further development of the association.
Along with construction, the association also wants to contribute to the offering of sports and games in the village. The club is in consultation with other sports federations in the village and the school as to how they can use the ground. It is also clearly the purpose that other unions will use.
rugby on the sand
Beach rugby is a nice change from on-field rugby and is often played in a tournament format in the spring. Previously, beach training sessions were done on a sandy ground on the heath, but this is no longer accessible. So the club has started looking for a new solution and has found it now.
The Big Stones also plan to hold a tournament at the new Beach Grounds every year from next year. For the construction of the field a layer of about 30 cm depth is dug into which special white sand is added, which does not stick together easily and hence does not harden. This allows the club to use the ground for many years, even if it is flooded for the ice rink every year. The work is done by Havelte’s company Jose Leffers.
re-leveling the center area
The excavated soil is used to level and level the center area of the ice rink. This will make the ice rink about the same depth again, which will promote freezing in winter. So this is a nice added benefit.
The work will start as soon as the weather becomes favorable. It aims to conduct the first training session on the new area during June.
At the beginning of the beach rugby field, Havelte and the surrounding area houses wheelbarrows along the sand for The Big Stones members and enthusiasts. There are already a lot of wheels in Havelte and the surrounding villages.
