EDVA Mixed Tournament 31st January 2016

This year’s event was once again a sellout with a full complement of 12 teams representing the majority of the clubs in the EDVA league. The first rounds of pool play resulted in the top two teams in both pools separated only by game points, setting up the prospect of some exciting matches as the teams were divided into Cup, Plate and Bowl competitions. So it proved with several of the placings being decided by only 2 or 3 points.

The final placings are shown below, with Torexe Hunters retaining their Cup title from last year, fighting off a late come back from Exeter Storm. The Plate final was a very closely fought match between Torexe Phantoms and EWVC Cardinals, with Phantoms just having the advantage at the final hooter.

Exeter Ladies Development Tournament Second Round 26th January 2014

The second in a series of three ladies development tournaments kicked off with a well attended clinic on the duties of the second referee, given by Andrew Potter, SWVA Officials Secretary and it was great to see people putting into practice what they learned during the tournament, many taking to the whistle for the first time.

Torexe Juniors v Taunton Juniors

This round of the competition was oversubsribed, but unfortunately on the day one team failed to arrive, leaving us with 7 teams, resulting in some teams getting more volleyball matches than they expected as the pool of three played each other twice. The tournament started with a fast and furious seeding round with teams playing short 12 minute matches.

Exeter Ladies Development Tournament First Round 22nd September 2013

Eight teams took part in round one of this years Ladies Development Tournament, the action started at midday with teams playing a quick set of pool matches to determine the afternoon match session.

The Match sessions took the form of two sets matches with teams collecting one match point per set. In the top pool, it was Chitas who came out on top, beating Academy of Beach Sports to the round one title and hence picking up maximum points.

Third and forth places went to Taunton Juniors and Torexe Ladies.

In the second pool, all four teams tied with three match points each after the six matches had finished. Final placings came down to points scored.

The event also provided the opportunity for development of officials, with help and advice  on hand throughout the day to the referees and scorers It was very encouraging to see people taking to the whistle for the first time or returning after an extended break.  Even more learnt how to fill in full match scoresheets with impressive results.

Round Two takes place on 26th Jan 2014, more photos available via the Photos Menu above.
