EDVA Mixed Tournament 4th February 2018
Twelve teams competed in the 2018 EDVA Mixed Tournament. It was fantastic to see half the teams in the competition made up of younger players, with four university teams from Exeter and Plymouth and both PMVC and Exeter Storms each fielding a young team.
The PMVC Scorpions team were primarily an under 16 team with the oldest player at 17! Many of these players were playing in their first adult competition and show great promise for the future. ESVC Thunder Stormers, comprised mostly of Under 18’s who are playing regularly in the EDVA Division One, showed their extra experience only losing one match in the pool round. They secured their place in the top four by a narrow victory over Plymouth BUCS, giving them a 1 point advantage at the end of the pool round. At the other end of Pool A it went down to the final match to determine the placings.
In Pool B, it was clear early on that ESVC Lightning Stormers were the ones in control, although it was a very close fought match with Exeter University BUCS. After the pool rounds teams were split into three groups competing for the Cup, Plate and Bowl titles. The semi-finals in all the trophy competitions each featured a club derby, with the two Exeter Storm teams competing for a place in the Cup final, Torexe Jaguars and Spitfires duelling it out to get to the Plate final and PMVC Tigers and Scorpions after a place in the Bowl final.
The Cup final saw Exeter University BUCS looking for revenge after their narrow defeat against ESVC Lightning Stormers earlier in the day, but after a very tight match it was not to be and ESVC took the Cup title.
The Plate final was a close game with the Plymouth University BUCS team just having the advantage over Torexe Jaguars.
In the Bowl final the less experienced Plymouth University side were no match for PMVC Tigers.

Anyone of the top four teams could have won the event as both semi-final were decided by a single point. In the end it was Taunton who took this years title in the final over EWVC Cardinals.
Kirton took this years Plate competition, with a win over PMVC Pirates in their final.

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.
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.
The top two teams from each pool Taunton Juniors, SWVA U16, Marjon University and Torexe Juniors went on to form the top pool for the second round of 2 set matches. The remaining teams, Ask Mum, Kings and PMVC Ivybridge Tigers formed a new pool of three and also played 2 set matches, but again played each other twice.
The final results for the second event are as follows:
