Ashcombe Tournament- Fun In The Sun Had By All


Ashcombe Volleyball Club once again hosted a successful tournament at Dorking Rugby Club. The weekend saw nearly 200 teams take part across the two days with over 1000 people involved.
Having run for over 30 years, the tournament once again proved a highlight of the volleyball tournament season with a junior and 4 a side competition on Saturday followed by a 6 a side competition on the Sunday. With teams coming from across the whole of the South of England as well as some from further afield the standard of volleyball on show was high as well as engaging many people in their first experience of volleyball tournament action.

As well as the on field action the tournament once again proved to be a great social occasion with many old friends catching up over the weekend as well as the Saturday night Hog Roast and Disco which was enjoyed by all.

Tournament Organiser Freda Bussey said ‘We had another great tournament this year, it was great to see so many people taking part, be it the seasoned campaigners or those participating for the first time, particularly those young people playing in the junior tournament. We were lucky with the weather and hope we can get the same again in future years! Thanks must go to the tournament sub committee and all the volunteers who helped to make the wonderful event happen’

Full results will feature on the club website during the week.
