Sitting volleyball grand prix update – 2013

After a tough season in the Volleyball England Sitting Volleyball Grand Prix, the 2 teams from the East Midlands, Loughborough Lions and Lincoln Imps, have both qualified for the end of season playoffs.

The competition, which features many of the players who represented Paralympics GB at London 2012, is contested across 5 events, with 10 teams playing 4 matches at each event and accumulating points across the season.

Both sides went into the final event in February with a chance to finish inside the top 4 and after both teams beat a strong Battleback side, qualified for the final and faced each other to determine their final placing. Lions came out on top, finishing 3rd on the day and 3rd overall which means they will face runners up Ashcombe Surrey Gators in the semi-final whilst Lincoln will face East London Lynx who topped the table after the regular season.

Junior girls volleyball training in East midlands

East midlands girls at the inter-regionals

The first session of this years training in the junior development programme for girls will be on Sunday 21st October at Hermitage Leisure Centre in Leicestershire (LE67 3FJ).

We have spent a few weeks ensuring we get a suitable venue, at a good price (we no longer receive funding from Volleyball England) in a location that is very central in the region. We have chosen this venue to encourage as many girls as possible to attend from throughout the region. The session will run from 1:30pm to 5:30pm.

We’ll meet in the bar area at the leisure centre to have a short briefing with the players before we start training.

So any junior girls aged 11 -16 that live in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire or Northamptonshire area that would like to get some volleyball training (even if you have never played before) please contact us

SESSION UPDATE – The second session will be on Friday 16th November, This will be 17.45 to 20 45 at Ashfiedl School in Kirkby in Ashfield – For more info  visit the calendar
