We found a venue

It is with great pleasure and gratitude that I announce that we now have venue for our volleyball club for practices which will take place twice a week from the week of the 18th of April 2016. The days and time for our first sessions will let all know once it is finalized.

We will also be introducing a new school to the game and to the league. Our venue is in the Kabega Park area and once we have all the details we will let all know.

We still need to get he lines drawn and the poles and net secured but that should be easy enough.

Now we must find a name for our little team. Any suggestions...?

DAY 3 RESULTS OF THE CHAMPIONS CUP


( staged at UKZN’s Westville Campus Sports Centre (September 23-27 2014)
By Donovan Nair

The battle lines were drawn on Day 3 (Thursday) of the Champions Cup for the country’s top 8 men’s volleyball teams as they locked horns in the crucial quarter final stage of the national showpiece for a place in Friday’s semi-finals. A semi-final berth will bring the teams closer to a podium placing.

Defending champions, the University of Western Cape (UWC) hardly broke into a sweat in the first two sets of their quarter final encounter against Cigma from Pretoria as the former posted a quick fire 25-14; 25-12 set scores to take a commanding lead.
A spirited fight back from the Pretoria team was short lived as the Capetonians stepped up a gear and wrapped the 3rd set with a 25-20 score line.

Local fans held their heads in exasperation as Liberte bowed out of the competition by going down to Gauteng’s University of Johannesburg in straight sets (25-19; 25-18; 26-24).

Losing the 1st two sets (25-19; 25-18) put a damper on the fighting spirit of the Tongaat lads. Despite efforts to turn their fortunes around Liberte did not succeed to topple the high riding student team. UJ’s determination to win the encounter paid off when they were quick to capitalise on Liberte’s unforced errors to close proceedings with a heart stopping 26-24 margin to win in straight sets.
DUT’s strength in attack especially by their skipper and power house master blaster, Jamine Naidoo had VW, the Eastern Cape outfit against the ropes by meting out a 25-11 thrashing.

Realising that they were not in any danger of losing the match, DUT eased the pressure on VW and experimented with a variety of attacking options.While DUT won the 2nd set by a 25-20 margin the Durban lads knew that VW was going to throw caution to the wind in the ‘do or die’ 3rd set and attempt a total onslaught strategy to gain the upper hand.
It was the experience of the DUT team that carried them through with a hard fought 25-23 win to book their place in Friday’s semi-final stage.

In an all Cape Town quarter final clash between All Star Saints and Atlantis Eagles, it was the latter that shocked their more fancied opponents when they took the opening set with a commanding 25-14 win.
The closely contested derby was eventually won by All Star Saints by posting a 25-21; 25-17; 25-20 score line.
In tomorrow’s (Friday) 1st semi-final match UWC will square up against fellow Capetonians, All Star Saints at 16:00 while UJ and DUT will meet in the 2nd match at 17:00.
