Richmond Volleyball’s 10,000 Digs for Kids

We are the RVB Junior Girls and are raising funds for Teenage Cancer Trust because we want to help teenagers like ourselves.

Richmond Volleyball Club is very fortunate to have a fantastic group of teenage girls.  We have had a record number join this year after a difficult 18 months of little or no volleyball and they have been super busy honing their volleyball skills. More importantly, they have been learning the value of teamwork, making new friends, playing matches, experiencing the excitement of competition, getting loads of exercise and of course much, much more!!

In 2019, we raised £587 for the Teenage Cancer Trust.  Our challenge back then was to collectively perform 10,000 digs (a critical volleyball skill) during their training session.  They did it!!!  With pretty much a whole new set of beginners this year along with some seasoned veterans, we are aiming to hit that 10,000 digs goal again this year and raise funds for those teenagers who are in hospital with cancer.  The girls are really up for it but they really need your support.  

The festive season is all about giving so tell all your friends, relatives, co-workers, neighbours, etc. to donate anything they can and help the girls SMASH their goal.  Any amount donated large or small is greatly appreciated so get the word out and help the team reach their goal by December 15th! 
We want to wish everyone all the best over the Holidays and a very Happy New Year!

Thank you for your support! Richmond Volleyball Club

Fantastic First Weekend

Well done to all our players this weekend. Richmond Bucks brought home a 3:0 win on Saturday, October 2nd, in their first-ever Division 1 match against Miners Doncaster. This was a debut for the team in Division 1, following their promotion from Division 2. With five players aged U18, what a fantastic result!  (25-20 | 26-24 | 25-18). MVP of the game was Peter Soczewka with an amazing 71% effectiveness in attack. Well, done team, we’re really proud of you!

Saturday was also the first game of the season for our Super League Richmond Docklands team. It was a tough 4-set match against Durham who won 3:1 (24-26 | 25-16 | 25-13 | 25-21). Thank you to Durham for hosting.

 

On Sunday, October 3rd, the Super League team were victorious against Sheffield Hallam without dropping a single set (25:19 | 25:19 | 25:15). MVP went to Andrea Ivanov whilst the Black Knight was awarded to Tomasz Wysocki.
