As for the name:
Our unusual name can be traced as far back as the reign of Henry VII. It appeared on maps and other documents of the time as ‘Sandyballas’, which is the description given to the dome-shaped sand and gravel outcrops on our western boundary.
Those outcrops were formed millennia ago during the Eocene era. Many of them remain including Good Friday Hill and Giant’s Grave, and it’s for them that Sandy Balls Holiday Centre is named.
Yes, this 91-year-old Hampshire (UK) resort has history and etymology on its side. Our inner twelve-year-old, however, can't get past the uncomfortable-sounding double entendre. And the tagline ("Make It..."? Really?) isn't helping.
