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!
