We are back!

After over 500 days of no competitive indoor volleyball, the Exeter and District League is back! Last weekend we saw Exeter Storm VC, Torexe VC, PMVC, the University of Exeter and newcomers Marjon all take to the court! The games are going to come thick and fast now with another 4 games this weekend. You can see all the scheduled fixtures on the EDVA Fixtures Site.

Electronic Whistles

Electronic Whistles are to be used in the EDVA league this year, to help clubs meet this, the EDVA will funds two pairs of electronic whistles (up to a max of £20 each) per member club with multiple EDVA league teams and one pair per member club with only one EDVA league team.

This should caters for a club hosting two simultaneous matches, plus mitigates any issues with coordinating equipment between teams where a clubs doesn’t store equipment at their playing venue.

As an example we have been using the Precision Electronic Whistle (price £13 to £18)

  • Two selectable whistle tones. Good for 1st & 2nd Refs
  • Easy to use: Operate by single hand.
  • Strong and consistent sound.
  • Special design metal-tubing.
  • 125db +/-5dB.
  • Requires 4 x CR2032 batteries (included)
  • Warning: Not suitable for children. Small parts. Choking hazard. Adult use only.

And Do not point at anyone……..

600 New Scoresheets

We took delivery of our latest supply of scoresheets today, twenty pads of thirty A3 scoresheets, no carbon copy this time. So away teams will need to take a photo for their records and in case the home team misplaces the original (which occasionally happens).

If your club needs a new pad, please contact Rob who will be holding the Plymouth stock, or if at the Exeter Riverside LC, spare copies available from the Torexe Cage.

Time to Kick Start EDVA Volleyball

Like everything else, we have been in hibernation for the last 16 months but it’s now time to re-start and plan for a 2021/22 indoor league.

The EDVA operates across the area of Devon and West Somerset and sometimes further afield with a two-division league program (mix league, 2.42m net) and a ladies league (ladies + U15 Boys). Matches are played on a home and away bases and ALL five sets are played, so plenty of volleyball for everyone.

As well as Exeter & Plymouth, previous members have come from: Ashburton, Barnstaple, Burnham-on-Sea, Crediton, Churston, Cullompton, Honiton, Lympstone, Minehead, Newton Abbott, Paignton, Taunton, Teignmouth, Tiverton and Totnes.

If you would like to be involved, you will need to attend the compulsory # AGM, 12th August at the Exeter Coaver Social Club, 8pm to 9:30.

# University clubs can apply for an exemption on receipt of an appropriate request.

As well as clubs we also need people to run the league (we all expired a years ago), it’s quite simple, no volunteers, no league so please get involved. League entries will follow with a Fixture meeting in early September.

2020 is rapidly approaching, which means so is the annual EDVA Mixed Tournament, which will be on Sunday 2nd February 2020 as usual at Riverside from 10 am to 6 pm. We only have spaces for 12 teams and with 17 teams playing in the two mixed divisions this unfortunately means we don’t have room for all teams.

All Clubs who enter BEFORE the closing date will be guaranteed one place in the tournament, the remaining places will be allocated based on places requested by clubs and the number of teams the club has in the league.

2019 EDVA Plate Winner: Torexe Jaguars

The closing date is 20th December which gives you 3 weeks to let me know how many teams you want to enter.
