Congratulations to gold-medal winners SUMMER who came first with 19 points. Second were gallant losers SPRING with 17, and AUTUMN with 14.
Must be noted the excellent performance by Autumn in denying Spring the victory in the filal game (Spring had the powerplay card too) allowing Summer the victory.

Sets (hopefully-time permitting) first to 25; 4 points for the winning team and bonus points for reaching 15 and 20 for the losers.

POWERPLAY RULES; at the start of the evening all captains will choose one game as their powerplay - and any points gained from that game will be doubled. 

Medal winners will be the team at the top of the group. Two tied teams will be separated by the number of players in the correct colours. If still tied - a three-point play-off. (if all teams are tied on points/shirt colours then a lottery draw will be made)

AGM Minutes September 2017

Posted by howardarw on September 25, 2017 at 6:05 AM Comments comments (0)

Thanks to all for attending and providing!

At the moment the club doesn't have a proper qualified coach. Members have tried to cover the training time with a few drills and their effort has been appreciated, but it is very difficult to come up with a training that suits all abilities. It has been agreed at the meeting that people are getting cold during the training which can result in injuries. It's been voted that until we have a qualified coach we will not be doing any training drills. Players will warm up in pairs, with spiking and serving to follow, and the rest of the time will be for social games. Jitu has expressed an interest in coaching but if anyone else is interested please contact Reza or Petra. Coach will do a course, have sessions free and a guaranteed place on sessions as per last AGM minutes.


2) New ball

It has been agreed at the last AGM that a new ball will be purchased but that hasn't materialised. Roberto will look into buying a good quality ball costing under £50.


3) Committee members

Couple of members have kindly taken up vacant positions as follows:

Ellen Tuite - New Event manager (sharing this role with Reza)

Valentina Campodonico - New Welfare officer. This role ensures that health and safety regulations are followed and any misbehaving is dealt with accordingly. Valentina will do the relevant course soon. NJ is to pay for the fees.

Additional treasurer role is still vacant so Simon remains the main finance person. When Simon is absent the event manager will select someone from the attendees to collect money.

Chairman/woman position is still vacant.


4) Finance of the club

Financial details are available upon request. It has been agreed that there will be no increase in subs and this decision will be reviewed in January 2018.


5) Insurance

Having now selected a new welfare officer, Simon will be able to complete NJ insurance paperwork.


6) Sarah suggested taking part in a tournament which will take place in August 2018 in Paris. It is a mixed team tournament and anyone interested is to contact Sarah.


7) Christmas do

Rachel expressed interest in organising this but everybody is encouraged to help out.


8) Jitu suggested taking part in local league but there is a lot of organisation involved and it is quite difficult to get a sponsor. It is too late for the 2017 season but anyone interested is welcome to organise it for next year.


9) Majid mentioned that we might look at different sports hall for our sessions, e.g. Sugden sports centre where the court fees are £37 an hour. This is to be looked into.


Inter-club Tournament + AGM

Posted by howardarw on September 10, 2017 at 9:55 AM Comments comments (0)

Both on Wednesday September 20th 2017

Tournament 7 - 9pm - put your name down in the event when posted on facebook!

AGM to be held in the Salutation starting 9.30pm.

Bad news - no volleyball on these dates!

Posted by howardarw on April 27, 2017 at 7:45 AM Comments comments (0)

10, 17, 24 May
7, 14, 21 June
Leaves one session in 7 weeks, the 31st May.

This is due to school exams; usually we miss a couple of sessions so to lose 6 is very disappointing.

However - watch this space for alternatives, and one of the dates may well be used for our AGM.


Tourney results!
