SV in the South West
At the moment, we are only aware of two part time Sitting Volleyball teams in the South West region, ideally we would like to see a South West representative team, reguarly taking part in the Grand Prix series.
We would also like to know how many people in the region have or are currently looking to introducing Sitting Volleyball into their clubs or local association.
If enough people are interested then we would like to arrange for a VE Sitting Volleyball seminar for advice, coaching, equipment, funding options and general help.
If you are involved or are interested in Sitting Volleyball, could you please complete the following survey, thank you. Sitting Volleyball Survey

Great Britain men finish with heads held high
8th September 2012
Great Britain’s men finished 8th overall in the Paralympic Sitting Volleyball tournament, after a straight-sets defeat to China at the ExCeL this afternoon (Friday).
As with Wednesday’s match against Paralympic champions Iran, they looked the better side for periods, and could easily have taken third set, which was level at 22-22 before the Chinese scored three quick points to seal victory.
GB secured victory over Morocco in the group stages, to secure a quarter-final place.
