VBDC U15 Girls beaten finalists …

The VBDC Under 15 girls team didn’t quite manage to cause an upset in the national final against Richmond, but they certainly got pulses racing and the Richmond coach reaching for the timeout button in a close first set. It was good to see campers featuring for Richmond, Urmstone and of course VBDC over the weekend

The match, and all the other finals are available to stream on the Volleyball England YouTube channel.

Junior Grand Prix 2022

Launching in January 2022 Volleyball England junior competitions have had a face lift. With the new tiered Grand Prix style series of events, quite a lot has changed since the competitions last ran.

The new-look U15, U16 and U18 series have created a level of play that is ideal for new or inexperienced teams while also creating competitive playing opportunities for the country’s most talented junior athletes.

The VBDC-Club are delighted to be among record 290 teams from volleyball clubs and schools have entered Volleyball England’s refreshed junior competitions and look forward to hosting the first round on 16th January

Volleyball England Junior Grand Prix

March 12th, 2022|

One of the unexpected side effects of the Covid pandemic has been a surge in interest for playing volleyball among youngsters, certainly fuelled in part by a certain Japanese cartoon series.

Credit must go to Volleyball England and in particular to their Competitions Commission for first of all recognising the need for a competitive outlet for both the new comers to the sport as well as catering for the existing players and secondly devising a structure that pretty much addressed the needs of both groups.

Over 300 junior teams have signed up  for the Grand Prix series which is split into two tiers and played over 3 rounds in the Under 15, 16 and 18 girls and boys competitions. This structure should see teams playing at least a minimum of 9 matches, with Tier 2 events arranged to keep traveling distances down while also playing against a variety of different teams.

In Tier 1, after the first round of matches teams are split into Gold, Silver and Bronze pools, with movement between these pools also possible after the second round of matches depending on results.

We have been fortunate to have attended (and indeed hosted) several of these events and the feedback has been positive across the board
