Step 4 on the roadmap has been delayed

Earlier this week the Government announced that England will not be proceeding to Step 4 of the lockdown roadmap as planned on 21st June.

Sport England has since confirmed that the existing volleyball guidance will remain the same until we reach Step 4. This could happen on 19th July at the earliest.

This means there will be no changes to their current guidance, which you can read by visiting www.volleyballengland.org/coronavirus.

With this delay all outdoor grass tournaments have been cancelled or postponed and Volleyball England has received several queries related to outdoor volleyball tournaments as a result of the news. Please read the updated list of FAQs to specifically address many of those questions. Please scroll down that page to read the specific information on outdoor tournaments.

Thank to everyone that is following the return to play protocols. If you have any questions or need some support, please get in touch info@readingaces.co.uk

No outdoor session today, 16th of May at 4pm due to wet weather

Dear All,

We are really sorry but the weather has turned considerably worse and unfortunately we took a decision to cancel volleyball for this afternoon.

Hopefully the weather will be better next week and we can get to play. Or book onto the session on Tuesday evening instead.

Please pass this message on to anyone else that you know was planning to go, so that we can make sure that noone is turning up unnecessarily.

Hope to see you Tuesday at 6:30 pm at Prospect Park!

Time for Summer tournaments – don’t forget to sign up!

Despite the current climate, we heard good news that there is a possibility of outdoor volleyball tournaments this summer!

The first is Ashcombe. This year it is a one-day tournament scheduled for 27th June. If you are interested please indicate on Facebook https://m.facebook.com/questions.php?question_id=10166376478060725&comment_id=10166408037215725&notif_t=group_comment_reply&notif_id=1615918912094457&ref=m_notif (or let Claire claire.stent@breathe.com or Katie katiefox3105@gmail.com know if you do not have access).

There will be a charge of £10 which must be paid before we enter teams. We will monitor the responses on Facebook, and let you know when/how to pay and enter teams as soon as we have the committed numbers. Due the limited tournament schedule the places will go quickly so book your interest as soon as possible.

Whitefield (Bristol) is also hoping to go ahead on 17th/18th of July. We have no details as yet, but the cost will probably again be around £10 per person and we will only enter teams with enough committed.

Watch the further announcements. Thank you!
