Dear Richmond Supporter
ON THE COURT THIS WEEK
NVL 1st Teams
RVB league leaders conceded a 2-0 advantage at home & won 3-2 to beat Bristol City in NVL Men’s Div 2 South. Next Sunday they have Wessex at home – come and support! The women travelled away and lost 3-0 to Devon Storm in a NVL Div 2 South fixture.
NVL Youth Teams
RVB Women’s Youth team (average age 16 years old) beat Cardiff 3-2 coming back from 2 sets down. They then won against Ashcombe 3-1 after going down a set down in their away NVL Women’s Div 3 South triangular fixtures (5th in the league). Next Sunday they have Wessex at home – come and support!
RVB Men’s Youth team (average age 17 years old). Although they remain top of the league they lost 3-0 to University of East London. UEL registered a new player 2 minutes (literally) before the start of the match, which started 15 mins late as a result of this, and which otherwise could not have been played as they only had 5 players. Disappointing….. We believe VE National League Rules need to change the ‘on-the-spot-player-registration’ regulation that allows these unfair situations to happen, especially when other clubs (like RVB) make a big effort to follow the rules and improve the level of the competition.
RVB Surrey Men lost 3-1 against Mole Valley.
