As the season comes to end here we have the final league standings for EDVA Division 1. Exeter Storm Volleyball Club Lightning Stormers retained the title after going unbeaten all year with PMVC Pirates securing a closely fought second place by one point over fellow club mates Vikings.
Elsewhere Torexe VC Hunters pipped Kirton to fourth place by four sets with the young squad of Thunder Stormers taking 6th spot above Torexe Jaguars in 7th.
Finally University of Plymouth BUCS, who were a completely different side to last seasons titled contending team, are holding the rest. Well done to all the clubs, players, volunteers, referees and drivers who were involved this season!

After many years of service, Ali is taking a break from the beach volleyball scene and is standing down as the EDVA Beach Director. The roll is to take the lead in organising and running the Exmouth Beach Volleyball Club and associated beach program.
This is currently just the weekly Tuesday evening beach sessions but it has also included the Beach League, Beach Coaching and the Beach Tournament program in the past.
If you are interested or need to know more, then please let us know.
We will be having our annual EDVA tournament on Sunday 4th February. It is open to all teams playing in the Mixed League Division 1 and 2, however we have a maximum of 12 places available and there are 15 teams in the league, so unfortunately we don’t have space for everyone.
Each club is guaranteed at least one place, so long as you enter before the closing date of 20th December, the remaining places will then be allocated based on requests. Please let me know how many places you would like to have as a club and I will then confirm after the closing date, if we have more entries than we have space for.
It’s that time of the year again, we had the EDVA AGM just over a week ago and with all the formalities completed please find attached the League Entry Form and Team Registration List. At the AGM we agreed to keep the fees as last season and look to run two mixed and a ladies divisions to begin from September 30th.
If you wish to enter for the upcoming season please complete and send the entry forms to email@example.com by the 26th August, payments are accepted online or via cheque.
All teams that enter will be required to send a representative per team to the Fixtures Meeting on the 2nd September.
ESVC Lightning Stormers picked up their Division One winners trophy this week at the AGM, the trophy was collected by Ashleigh Harry and presented by Fixtures Secretary Rob Young, also from Lightning Stormers (well done to all).

The Heavitree Park Life Volleyball Tournament returned for its second year on another glorious sunny day, with Heavitree Pleasure Grounds providing a fantastic scenic background.
Twenty teams competed split into two divisions after 70 matches we had our semi-finalists in each division. Despite the heat it was a day with some excellent volleyball and great camaraderie between the teams, with several playing in their first tournament, through to seasoned campaigners.
In Division 1 both semi-finals were extremely close fought matches, with last year’s winners Kernow just holding off Shark in Park by a couple of points. It was even closer in the other match with Exe Men just one point ahead of Friends United. In the final local team Exe Men showed their determination to get revenge from a loss to Kernow in the early rounds and took the title from Kernow.
In Division 2 local teams Basia and the Giants and Bidders Beauties both lost out in their semi-finals to set up a final between Bristol Hornets and G JAB (from Weston-Super-Mare). Bristol Hornets were too strong for G JAB and comfortably took the Division 2 title.
Following its successful inauguration event last year, the Parklife Heavitree grass tournament returns on Saturday 30th June. Once again it will combine with the Sports in the Park event, which has events from Exeter Chiefs rugby and Exeter City Football amongst several others, so there will be plenty going on during the afternoon.
Entries are now open for 2018.
We are hoping to expand the event from last year and offering an early bird discount to those entering before 30th May.
