This year's Leicestershire Volleyball Association's Autumn Tournament was a great hit with Athena. We fielded 2 teams in the women's competition and many of the players stayed on to take part in the mixed competition afterwards.
To think that we took part last year, in our first competitive outing, and won with just 6 players and now, we can take 14 players and field 2 strong teams shows how far we have come.
In a 5 team pool, Athena 2, led by Joy, won outright, narrowly beating Loughborough students by a narrow 2 points different after we had both won 3 out of 4 matches. Athena 1 came third.
But, more important than any result was the fact that we had a great deal of fun, a couple of players played their first matches EVER, we had a couple more playing their first matches for us and it was FUN ... did I mention that already?
Well done to everyone who took part, and a huge thank you to Phil Cobb of the Leicestershire Volleyball Association, who organised the whole tournament and to Joy who organised our participation.
