What’s it all about?
These tournaments used to run and provided great craic, a day’s volleyball for all and a brilliant way for clubs to introduce new or inexperienced / subs or second players into the game. The idea is to provide teams that are not just mixed sex but mixed experience levels and ages. The focus being on the developing players learning fast in game situations from the experienced players. It is ideal for clubs who have development ambitions or those who have a small number of enthusiasts who can’t put out a regular team, or simply the players who can’t get enough of playing volleyball.
Dependent on team entries but two pools in the morning with top teams going through to a pool in the afternoon and same for bottom two teams. No knockout to ensure maximum volleyball for all.
Typically age ranges are from 12- 60 yrs old and most teams comprised 2-4 club players alongside 2-4 less experienced players. This is not a tournament for 6 good players to all enter together, it would be counter to the point of the event and boring for all concerned. Junior NI teams/ school teams are welcome but should consider the possibility of mixing in some experience to show how things should be done.
How do I get involved?
