SW Championships

The SW Championships is the official Volleyball Championship of the SWVA and will take place at the Plymouth Marjon University on the 14th – 15th May 2022 and the cost is £135 per team.

Please note that this tournament is the South West’s elite competition to find the best team in the region. Teams are therefore expected to select their players from their current registration lists and the organizers reserve the right to apply sanctions to the club for future events for obvious transgressions.

2022 Entry process

NVL clubs (within the SWVA region) and SW League clubs are eligible to submit entries for one of their existing NVL or SW teams per gender in the first round. Clubs based in the SWVA region which don’t have any teams in the NVL or SWVA Leagues are invited to complete an expression of interest on the website to be considered for an invite into the second round. NVL and SWVA clubs wishing to enter a second team must also complete the expression of interest. Depending on how many places (if any) are available at the end of Round One will guide how many teams are invited to enter in Round Two. Preference will be given to clubs which have not already entered a team in that division.

The first round of entries will open on Saturday 5th March at 10 am.  Please use the time now to confirm that you do have a team available BEFORE entering and that you have a nominated person in your club to enter your team on the day.

If you are entering teams in the second round with players who are not currently registered to play in either an NVL team or a South West League team there will be a £2 temporary membership fee per person. All SW and NVL teams are expected to be using players from their current registered player list.

Please go to the Entry Process for more details and links to the booking form Entry Process

We now have 13 teams in both the ladies and men’s divisions, each team will play 10 matches in the pool rounds (6 on Saturday and 4 on Sunday) and will referee 5 times. This means that there are two teams that each team will not play over the pool rounds, so there will be play-offs for teams finishing in 3rd to 6th place, so nearly half the teams will have at least one more match.

Below are the schedules, if you want your own copy to have with you over the weekend then please print and bring with you. There will be schedules on each score table and at the competition desk, but I will not have spare copies to hand out!

There will be a team brief at 9am on Saturday morning in the cafe, so please ensure that you have at least one team member up in the café for 9am.

Speedcage

We will also have the Sportway speedcage on Saturday from 9am-1pm and also on Sunday 12pm-3pm – the challenge will be that top male and female spike of the weekend will get a Sports Way goody bag – it will be free to use over the weekend.

Sportway Shop

We will also have a shop up in these times as well, which Luke and Matt will be in attendance to sell the tickets for the booze cruise on Saturday night as well as the SW Champs shirts and other items too (Shoes etc)

Saturday Cruise

Regards the booze cruise – still plenty of tickets available – link to get tickets is below and attached is a poster – again we will print some off for the weekend
