Squirrels disrupt beach volleyball

Beach volleyball /PA

Olympic beach volleyball players have come across an unexpected handicap – squirrels burying their nuts on their courts.

The rodents have been burying beechnuts and acorns on six sandy practice courts at London’s St James’s Park.

And bikini-clad players have been left grimacing as they land barefoot on the squirrel snacks.

Groundsmen now have to rake the sand before practice sessions, reports The Sun.

Six courts, two warm-up courts and a hospitality lounge have been created in the leafy lakeside park close to Buckingham Palace.

The 15,000-seat main competition arena in nearby Horseguards Parade has not been affected.

A London 2012 source told the newspaper: “It’s nuts but true. It seems squirrels have been invading the courts and either hiding or dropping their nuts.

“But it won’t affect the competition because the sand is regularly raked.”
