First RAVC online quiz on Tuesday the 21st of April at 7:30 pm

Dear All,

I don’t know about the rest of you but I am getting severe withdrawal symptoms from Volleyball training and whilst we can’t actually train there is no reason why we can’t get together, if only online.

What I am proposing is a quiz, on Tuesday starting on the 21st April from 19:30. Exact details are to be sorted out, but it will be run by me.

We will try to run it on Zoom, once I have sorted out how to use it myself, and I will send out details closer to the time.

If you want to get involved then please contact me :

Dave Fox                            dave@djfox.plus.com                   07470 989634

Hope to ‘see’ you all there.

Payments clarification for the rest of this season due to COVID-19

Dear All,

As previously communicated, in light of government advice and with the closure of sports halls and schools, Reading Aces Volleyball club has been forced to stop all training with immediate effect. At this moment we are unsure when training will restart but we will keep you posted. Details will be on the club website at https://readingaces.wordpress.com/ or on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/10847690724/.

Note that National Volleyball League and Berkshire Volleyball League have also made the same decision, so matches will were cancelled until further notice.

Those of you who are paying by standing order, please arrange for the payment to stop after the March payment. Anyone who has already paid beyond that point will have credit once training restarts. Anyone who still owes us up to the current March, then please arrange for payment at your earliest convenience; details can be found here: https://readingaces.wordpress.com/membership/fees-2017-18/

If you have any queries then please contact one of the following committee members:

Read more here. Following this announcement the Berkshire Volleyball Association also has decided to suspend all upcoming games.

As a result of this and following the government’s advice, we regret to say that Reading Aces is also suspending the training sessions in all locations until further notice. We might introduce outdoor sessions in May but this is to be decided.

Stay safe and healthy and thank you for your support!

A crucial win again second in the league for our NVL ladies

Congratulations to our NVL ladies for winning 3-1 a crucial game on Sunday. They have faced Bristol VC (currently second in the league). It was an entertaining and tough game with ups and downs but our ladies showed an amazing fighting spirit, coming back from behind in the second set (and just missed on a win) and were 12-20 down in the fourth set but still have managed to win. 25-19, 25-27, 25-22, 26-24. MVP Carly. Well done girls and good luck next Sunday playing Cardiff (fourth in the league). #readingacesnvl #readingaces
