This year has seen Riga enter a new Division 3C ladies team in the National a league. The ladies have had several years of success in NVL Division 2N with a separate ladies team in West Midlands league. So we decided to push on and enter NVLDiv 3. First game was away in Norwich and the girls won 3-1 against Ashfied Vipers before going down 3-0 v Norwick Spikers (or Spiders if you are Jules!). The last set was 29-27 showing how the Riga ladies improved as the game went on. So much to play for as the season continues! #goriga

This weekend saw the annual Riga tournament take place in the sunshine at the University of Warwick.  The colour of the grass showed the heat of the weather this year - but that didn't stop the teams coming out in force!  John Boughton (tournament organiser) got the proceedings under way with a captains meeting and a brief recap of the rules of the tournament and then it was all action, smiles and volleyball for the rest of the day.

The final standings were:-

1st place - Pierogi

2nd place - Draugi

3rd place - Alex's crew

4th place - Class on grass

5th place - Vertically challenged

6th place - Riga 1996

 

Thanks to all the teams for coming along to take part and thanks to John for all the organising.  See you again next year!
