Our annual White Rose tournament was held on Sunday and with great weather came accompanied by some great volleyball. With 16 teams entering the tournament started with a busy morning to help sort the teams out to our main cup competition and plate competition. Our cup winners on the right- Do bits society had some close games early on but manage to grind their way to the final. Our plate winners from our own club- Haugton 1 were able to bounce back after a difficult first pool in the morning against one of the semi finalists and come back stronger with each game to become our plate champions. Thank you to all the teams that entered whether local our some of our friends from all over the UK we are glad the event was well received and we look forward to next years tournament were we hope to see many more entries to make the competition even higher.
