Only days to go for Sea Sessions 2022!
This weekend, Barefoot beach sports fanatics are set to join Sea Sessions headliners Kodaline, Tinie Tempah, Joel Corry and Basement Jaxx at the biggest beach party weekend of the year as Barefoot Beach Sports make a highly anticipated return.
The incredibly popular Barefoot Beach Sports, sponsored by Barefoot Wine, will feature Volleyball, Soccer, Rugby, Frisbee and Yoga.
An annual part of Sea Sessions, Barefoot Beach Sports are open to all Sea Sessions festival goers from teams to individuals. While people may get competitive, the events are run in the festival spirit, which makes having a laugh a top priority! Barefoot Beach Sports has grown every year at Sea Sessions with each beach sport becoming its own mini festival in its own right, with Barefoot wine, the main sponsors, helping grow the event over the last 13 years.
All proceeds for Barefoot Beach Sports will go to charity partners and event hosts Liquid Therapy, a multi award winning charity with its base in South Donegal, Ireland. They provide a supported environment that enables young people to experience the physical and therapeutic benefits of the surf and ocean, through our child led and individually tailored programs. Barefoot Wine has proudly supported Liquid Therapy since their inception nearly 10 years ago.
