Paul Roggeman European Open Beach Championships


The Paul Roggeman European Open Beach Championship is an annual three day beach fishing competition held on the East Riding of Yorkshire Coast. The competition is started on the Friday with the Flattie Bash, a measure and return event, and the main championship is held on the Saturday and Sunday. Prizes are awarded each day and overall for the Saturday and Sunday. There are also options to enter pairs and teams of four competitions.

Tickets are now on sale until Thursday 7th February 2019

With a record number of competitors contesting the event in 2018, it is anticipated that interest will be high for next year’s championships.

The event HQ will again be at Sand Le Mere Holiday Village, near Withernsea, with fishing from the north end of North Marine Promenade, Bridlington, to the Pilot Jetty at Spurn Point.

Councillor Richard Burton, cabinet portfolio holder for leisure, tourism and culture, said: “The feedback we have received about the 2018 event has been very positive and EY Events, as the competition organisers, is already gearing up for next year’s contest.

“The Paul Roggeman European Open Beach Championships is one of the most eagerly anticipated competitions on the angling calendar and sees competitors’ locally, nationally and internationally taking part, including from Germany, Belgium and The Netherlands.

“As well as being an exciting three days of fishing, the event helps promote the East Riding as a tourist destination and benefits the local economy to the tune of almost half-a-million pounds.

“Next year’s championships will be here before we know it and I would urge those who would like to take part to save the dates and plan their visit in advance to avoid disappointment.”
