Mens NVL (14)

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.

Men through in Shield comp after 3-0 win

Written by

Riga men played Newcastle Staffs this weekend - looking for a win to get through to the next round in the Volleyball England shield competition to face Melton Lions.  A change from our usual venue - this match was hosted at Centre AT7 as Alan Higgs wasn't available.  The team settled into the game slowly and got their rhythm.  Charlie passed the ball expertly giving Robert options and enabling him to find Ro through the middle for some killer hits.  Tom dominated through four and strong blocking from Matt and Paul saw Riga take the set 25 - 14.

Men beat Manchester in 5 set thriller!

Written by

Having avoided automatic relegation the boys have two games left and need to win both to avoid the play offs (one being against league leaders Sheffield). To set up that clincher though they would first need to face InterVolley Manchester which was going to be a tough ask in any event.

Under Stand-In coach Coach Jon's watchful eye the boys had a nervous start. The teams traded points and Riga missed opportunities with service errors. There was a little bit of crowd disturbance that was quickly dealt with and the game resumed! From a time out at 13-20 down the men started to close the gap but Manchester took the set 25-21.

Manchester proves too far for Riga

Written by

The men had a very delayed start to their game last weekend in Manchester following the half term traffic on the M6 meaning delays and yet more delays.  This traffic paid its toll (mmm...perhaps we should have gone on the toll!) and Manchester won the game 3-0.  The women followed having had an equally tough journey and were faced with an equally tough game also losing 3.0.  Some pics of the men's team in action are below - click read more to view.

Tendring prove too strong for Riga men

Written by

Riga mens team's first home game of the season saw them hosting Tendring.  Tendring were last year's shield winners and consistently finish high in the league.  They also have a volleyball scholarship programme with the local University so were likely to have new signings which would strengthen them further still.
