Richmond Docklands into cup round 3

A comprehensive 3-0 win (12, 14, 14) for Richmond Docklands against Afghan VC (AVC London) saw Marcel Sivak’s side coast into round 3 of the cup.  In the next round they will face Weymouth Beach VC on Saturday 13th November at Kingston College Arena.

The match marked a third Docklands’ “debut” for Bruno Lusic who has returned to the squad after two spells with the team in 2012 and 2017.  He formed a powerful partnership with fellow outside hitter Vitor De Oliveira and AVC had no answer.  De Oliveira was awarded the Black Knight award for a dominate display.

 

 

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.

 

 

Richmond Volleyball update July 27th 2020

We hope that you and your families are fit and well. A lot has been going on behind the scenes at Richmond Volleyball as we wait until we can return to play. It’s obviously been a frustrating time for our club members and volunteers, especially our beach teams who so far have seen most of their season wiped out.

Our beach programme had some good news last week when Richmond Council announced that the beach courts in Teddington will re-open on Monday 17th August.

We are in the process of updating our policies and making practical preparations so that we can re-start beach training safely as soon as possible.

We obviously welcome the news today from Volleyball England that we can return to indoor 6v6 training and competition. We are speaking to our venues to ascertain when we can begin indoor training again and we are active in on-going discussions in the volleyball community as we all work towards returning to the court.

Needless to say, we will return and we look forward to welcoming everyone back as soon as we can.

In the meantime, please stay safe and keep checking our website and social media for further updates.

Polonia make it 17 in row against battling Richmond Docklands

Richmond Docklands returned to Kingston Arena for the first time in almost two months to take on Super League champions IBB Polonia London.  After a run of four league wins in a row before Christmas, Richmond are still looking for their first Super League win of 2020.  It was always going to be a tough task against the current table toppers but several of Docklands’ squad have connections back to the visitors so have an added incentive to win against their old team.
