It is with great sadness that we have to inform you that our dear friend Andre Montenegro passed away on Monday, the 23 November 2015.

Everyone who knew Andre will always remember his smile and friendliness, commitment and passion, support and positive attitude, generosity and humour.

He was one of the coordinators of the RVB Open Beach Volleyball Club and through his encouragement and coaching many new players got into volleyball.

We send our deepest sympathy to his family, in Richmond and in Brazil.

We will miss you , Andre!

August Bank Holiday weekend at Imber Court Sports Club in East Molesey was business as usual at the 7th Richmond Volleyball International Festival. It was great to see old and to make new friends and to enjoy good volleyball.

Congratulations to all winners and big thank you to volunteers for putting time and effort into organising this much loved by many annual tournament!

RVB on the Sand – The season so far….

Posted on July 14, 2015, Categories: Beach Volleyball, Community, Juniors, Leagues, News, South London Volleyball League

It has been a good beach season for both adults and juniors at RVB beach venue at Broom Road, Teddington Recreational Ground for all levels and ages, creating many opportunities for the community to be involved. We have seen many new players who have never played beach volleyball at the start of the season improve considerably, it is very encouraging to see their development. It’s great to see so many people enjoying beach volleyball!

RVB would like to say a big thank you to all the players, coaches, parents, volunteers & community partners who have been involved with us this year – we can’t do this without you!
