Over the Bank Holiday weekend Riga West Mids ladies travelled to Hereford for their last league game of this season. Having only lost one league game all season (right at the start to Hereford) there was all to play for with the winner likely to be league champions 2018!

The NVL season has reached its end.  Here's a quick round up of the action from our two NVL teams.  The West Midlands ladies still have a few games left to play yet and a shield semi-final (and let's hope a shield final!).

As the season's coming to an end attentions change to focus on the summer volleyball tournaments!  We've listed a few of the most popular ones below.  A full list is available (including the beach tournaments) on the Volleyball England website.  If you are running a tournament and it's not listed here, but you think it would be of interest to the Riga players, send us details via the Contact Us page and we'll add it!

It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to longstanding Club member Sarah Halling who sadly passed away last week.  Sarah was our good friend.  Her love for volleyball started when she played at the University of Warwick as a student.  Sarah has been a long time member of the Club.  On the court she very much welcomed the position of libero coming along as Sarah was an ex-England football goalkeeper in her youth and used those skills to dive around the back court as libero keeping the ball up and keeping Riga in many a match over the years.  Off the court, Sarah was a dedicated Club member.  She was Vice Chair of the Club a few years ago and has still been a regular helping with the line judging at fixtures and supporting the teams.

This weekend the NVL teams each hosted Team Sunderland on Saturday at the Alan Higgs Centre in Coventry.  The ladies kicked off first and started strongly with good serving putting the visiting team under pressure. Jules provided an excellent first ball and allowed Sophie to use all options bringing Mafalda and Sylwia into the game through the middle attack.  Riga soon finished off the set 25 - 20.
