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

Richmond Winter Beach Series starts 24th October

The summer might be over, but we’re pleased to announce that registration to our popular series of winter beach tournaments is now open.

Taking place once a month between October and March, these tournaments are aimed at all levels and are fast paced – with maximum of 8 teams on 3 courts, this means you get lots of games with minimum amount of breaks. The format is 2v2 and there are mixed and single-gender events.

There are medals to be won for each event and prizes for the overall series winners.

In the last two years the series was unfortunately cut short due to the national lockdowns, but hopefully this year we can complete the series.

Richmond’s top-level teams have a busy start to their NVL campaigns this weekend.

On Saturday the men kick off their Super League season with a tough trip to Durham.  That’s followed by a visit to Sheffield on Sunday.  

Richmond Bucks also head north on Saturday to face Miners Doncaster in their first-ever Division 1 fixture.

After such a long break all our teams are excited to see some on-court action again. 

Come on Richmond!

AGM 2021

After a two year gap (for obvious reasons) the club held its AGM on Sunday 1st August via Zoom (a club first).  A good turnout was able to learn how the club has dealt with a difficult 18 months and how the club remains in a strong position as we come out of the pandemic.

The meeting was also a chance to pay tribute to outgoing Club Chair Vera Kenyon.  Newly elected Chair Andy Hopper said, “On behalf of the club I’d like to thank Vera for all her hard work as the Club’s chair for the last 3 years.  Vera took over at a very difficult time and helped put the club back on track.  She’s had to deal with a lot behind the scenes which will have gone unnoticed by most of the club’s members but we are all in Vera’s debt for everything she has done for the club.  Thanks very much Vera”.

Thanks also went to Fab Goalen and Ilaria Bigotto who stepped down from their Exec roles, all their efforts were much appreciated.

The meeting saw the re-election of a number of club officers as well as new appointments.  Congratulations to Marcel Sivak (Club Secretary) and Corina Glowrey (Communications Officer) on their new Exec Committee roles, we’re sure they’ll do a great job.
