Following each Inter Regional Championships event, we ask a number of our representatives about their experience, today we focus on Toby Tapp (SW No. 1) from our U17 Boys Squad.
“This years Inter-regional volleyball competition was at the National Volleyball centre in Kettering, it was a great place for the tournament to be held as there was 4 courts with lots of space for serving compared to last year where the serving area was tiny.
I played as one of two main setters for our South West team, I felt a lot of pressure in the games as I was playing with people who play at a higher standard. It was a very good opportunity for me to show my team-mates and coaches what else I could do other than defend. After the two days of playing a round-robin tournament, South West came out second after only losing to the winners, London.
I would also say that I am very glad for the sponsoring from Torexe Volleyball Club and I am looking forward to playing in the tournament next year.”
