Volleyball teams ready for season
WITH Christmas now a memory, Gympie Volleyball kicks off its new season next Thursday at 6pm with trial matches and sign-on from 6pm to 10pm.
The club runs two competitions – an Open competition on Thursday nights at the Showgrounds Pavilion and a Women’s competition on Tuesday evenings.
Gympie Volleyball spokesman Rod Tebbutt is urging interested players to attend next week and “have a go”.
“Bring your friends,” he said. “New teams and individual players welcome.
“Trial matches for the Open competition will commence at the Pavilion from 6pm.
“It is expected that the Open competition will be split into three grades similar to last season.”
The provision of three grades allows for all levels of ability, from beginners and social players through to the competitive representative players, to become involved.
Meanwhile, matches for the Women’s competition will commence at 6pm on the following Tuesday (February 2).
“We look forward to the return of the players and teams from last season and welcome any new players or teams to the competition,” Tebbutt said.
“Please come along and try volleyball for yourself.”
Teams are urged to complete nomination forms and finalise their line-ups as soon as possible so that a formal competition draw can be established.
The annual general meeting of the Gympie Volleyball Association is scheduled to be held at 7pm, Thursday, February 11.
