London under 15s Grand Prix
More youngsters playing volleyball
On Saturday 29th October we witnessed the first ever London U15s Grand Prix event, where five teams participated. The competition was played in a round robin, allowing each team to play four games.

The first games kicked off between what we later found out were the top two teams: the VK Barnet Tigers ant the Polonia Bald Eagles. The Tigers took the game, making all the difference as both teams were undefeated for the rest of the day.

VK Barnet Pretzels and Panthers as well as the Polonia Golden Eagles had great fights throughout the day. A highlight for the Panthers and the Golden Eagles appeared when the teams finished on a draw and had to play the a golden point. The rally started with a serve over and in by the Golden Eagles, the Panthers responded to receive, set and hit the ball to side-out the point, and win the match.

An excellent day of sport in London with some girls playing their first ever competition.

Many thanks to the organisers Elsa Meserlian, Marie Emond and Eric Hill.
