Under 16 boys and girls (Volleyball England championship)
Greenhouse/Malory Eagles and Richmond boys' wins
The boys could not have done better. The girls of Richmond did extraordinarily well but fell in the semi finals. The London Association congratulates them all and looks forward to National Finals week-end, also at the National Volleyball Centre on 15th April.

Richmond A swept all before them in Pool A of the boys' competition beating Wessex, Newcastle, Staffs and Boswells School A in succession. Greenhouse Malory Eagles were equally impressive in Pool B, overcoming Haughton, New Forest Cadets and London's other side through to the last eight, Chadwell Heath. In the semi finals Richmond beat New Forest in a close game and Greenhouse Malory Eagles overcame Boswells in an even closer one.

Like their male counterparts, the girls of Richmond A came through Pool A with little trouble but with a little anxiety in one set against Black Country A and Westminster who were to finish third after a comfortable win against Beach Academy's "Breakers". Richmond B finished last in Pool B but not without the kudos of taking one eventual finalist, Tameside to three sets and performing well against the other, Beach Academy's "Waves". They also went down in two sets to Boswells. Richmond A lost in three sets to Tameside in the first semi final while "Waves" beat Black Country A in the other.
