The local sports club Völsungur has received a grant from the Ministry of Education and Culture for their project to set up two beach volleyball pitches in Húsavík. The two volleyball pitches were set up last year. The Ministry granted the sports club half a million króna.
According to Kjartan Páll Þórarinsson, the sports and youth representative of Norðurþing municipality, the pitches were installed on the grounds of Húsavík Museum last year. Then the land was completed and the nets were bought. This spring, the sports club plans to offer beach volleyball courses.
