Whitefield 2015

Written by

This weekend Riga headed to Bristol for the annual Whitefield tournament.  At a new location this year we all braved the holiday traffic and after several hours made it to Bristol and settled down to a nice evening meal and a few drinks to get the weekend started.

Wolston 2015 - the Results

Written by

This year's Wolston tournament was held on Sunday 12 July.  It's fair to say the day had mixed weather ranging from rain and (pretty much) hail during the morning that almost had the tournament abandoned through to glorious sunshine in the afternoon.

A group of Riga ladies from both teams headed to the annual Whitefield tournament in July.  Now becoming an annual favourite in the calendar the girls were out in full force for volleyball and socialising including Ruthie flying in from Canada for the tournament (as has become customary!).

We arrived Friday evening in the glorious sunshine and enjoyed the sights of Bath together with a lovely curry (and Indian Sauvignon Blanc) at a local curry house.  As we went to bed the weather was still fine and it was a lovely warm evening.  However, this was all set to change as we were awoken in the early hours of the morning by thunder and lightning!  That was set to continue throughout Saturday!

The ladies were not on first so tentatively arrived at the field to survey the floods of rain hammering down on the court!  The organisers did a great job of getting play under way though and with a few rain delays the teams all fought their way through the games.  Riga Team Harringtons had some great successes and also some difficult games, but the team spirit shone through and the girls placed well at the end of Saturday.
