Reading Aces started the season on Sunday by playing the first round of the National Cup with a three-set victory over the Spelthorne Volleyball Club 🏐
1⃣ 25:15 2️⃣ 25:14 3️⃣ 25:12
We started the match really well and played confidently and consistently from the first point. Our team perfectly executed the game plan and our serving was a big factor in the win. While maintaining full control of the game, we used our chances of winning the match quickly with a 3-0 result 💪 This match was also a great opportunity for our coach to test all players.
Reading Aces returns to play on Sunday – 2nd October in their first league game. Stay tuned!
