London Volleyball : Invitations out for season opener

London Volleyball Cup 2018/19
Eight top teams attracted
Several top teams have already expressed an interest in keeping this event alive and thriving so formal invitations have now been issued with the aim of attracting eight men's teams of the standard that plays in the National League Super League or first division and of the Premier Division of the London League.

It will be played on Sunday 23rd September at Ernest Bevin College, Beechcroft Road in Tooting Bec and a repeat of last year's exciting tournament is anticipated. In 2017 the Cup was won by IBB Polonia who beat the previous year's winners, London Lynx in a thrilling conclusion. 2018 looks like establishing the event as a "must attend" pre-season tournament.

With Richmond Docklands opening the national new Super League just six days later when Newcastle, Staffs are due to visit them in Kingston, the day will provide an opportunity for London's volleyball fans to assess their heroes' form for the competition to come. Do note, however, that in order to accommodate the number of matches required to make it a really valuable tournament, the hall will contain two courts side by side leaving relatively little space for spectators. It will be worth arriving in good time.

We shall publish the names of all the entries as soon as possible after they are known and, in the meantime, do make a note of the date in your diary and keep this Sunday free.

Venue, Ernest Bevin College, Beechcroft Road, London, SW17 7DF (nearest tube, Tooting Bec) Sunday 23rd September.
