🏐🏐🏐Indoor training and fees🏐🏐🏐

Hi everyone, indoor season is upon us and will begin next week (September 6th). The weekly training schedule is as follows:

• Monday 7-10pm Kendrick School: 7-9pm beginners only, 9-10pm BVA Women and beginners

• Tuesday 7.30-9.30pm Loddon Valley Leisure Centre: NVL Ladies, BVA Men

• Thursday 8.15-10.15pm Kendrick School: open club night for advanced players (high level juniors also welcome)

This year the club has decided to drop our annual club membership fee (usually £40 and £15 for adults and juniors respectively), therefore only regular training fees remain for the year. Two payment options are available for training fees:

• Discounted one off payment for the entire season, payable by September 17th at the latest

• Monthly direct debit payable in advance on the 4th of each month, with the last payment due April 4th, 2022

Training fees for both payment options are shown in the attached tables. They are dependent on which team you play with and whether or not you will be participating in matches. **If you are unsure of which category of fees that you fall under or have any questions regarding fees, please contact Si Collier. **

Club bank details are as follows and please make sure you include your name as a reference:

• Name: Reading Aces Volleyball Club

• Sort code: 40-47-09

• Account number: 81262386

If you haven’t already done so, make sure you fill in a membership form before coming to your first indoor session! Link here: https://readingaces.files.wordpress.com/2021/07/reading-aces-vc-registration-form-2021-2022.pdf

Gentle reminder that we are doing a mini-tournament for our last outdoor session next Sunday (5th September), followed by drinks at the pub. We will make an FB event with more details shortly.

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!
