Although the name of the event is the SW Vet’s Tournament, it’s more than that, with two thirds of the entries being from mixed teams. The competition uses a handicap system based not just on age but also with additional points for each female on court at the start of the match, encouraging a true mixed tournament. Teams then have to either hold on to their point’s advantage or catch the other team up within the allotted match period of seventeen minutes.
It’s a format that produces an excellent match environment and very entertaining volleyball for players and spectators alike and has produced a different event winner each year.
SUNDAY 9th NOVEMBER 2014
This years event is once again being held at the Riverside Leisure Centre, Exeter, EX4 1AF on Sunday 9th November 2014 between 10.00 am and 6.00 pm. (approx.). The age qualification is 35 i.e. players may only take part if they are 35 or over on the day of the tournament.
This is intended to be a social tournament and a chance for some of our former players to play again and meet old friends. Individuals, who do not have a team to play for, please enter your name and playing standard and I will do my best to pull teams and players together. As this is a tournament in which Men’s and Mixed teams will be playing against each other, teams will be given a handicap.
The cost of entry to the tournament will be £60 per team. The form below should be returned by 1st October 2014 to the SW Competitions Secretary:
