Ashcombe Finish Second At VolleyFEST


Ashcombe Dorking finished 2nd in the inaugral VolleyFEST competition held at Crystal Palace over the weekend defeated by London Super 8 rivals Swiss Cottage in the final.

The team struggled in the first day but managed to come out fighting on day two with the addition of Michelle Conway and Monika Gmuca to the line-up. Daisy Mumby and Rachel Higgins both made their competitive debuts for the Super 8 team and both made a very promising start.

Rachel, a student at The Ashcombe School will become the first of her junior cohort to become a Super 8 player at the club after impressive performances with the junior squad and excellent progress made during pre-season training. Rachel recently played for England Cadets at the Masters competition in Sheffield alongside Ashcombe School classmate Lydia Goodwin.
