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!


Riga tournament - Sunday 15 July  (date to be confirmed still) - The popular Riga tournament.  Played in a relaxed atmosphere, this year will again be held at the University of Warwick.  6 x 6 teams can be mens or mixed or women all playing together in the same competition.  To enter use the Contact Us function on this website.  For further details look out on the website and/or facebook page where we will post once released.


Ashcombe - 23 to 24 June - With a mix of formats to suit everyone Ashcombe is a well run tournament which sits outside the immediate tournament season so is a good warm up event.  Full details and how to enter is available on their website. 


Sandwell - Sat 7 July - A local one day tournament (in Birmingham) which is heavily supported by teams in the West Midlands region.  It's a 6 v 6 tournament with mens, womens and mixed divisions. Find out more here - https://www.facebook.com/events/327291624433507/?ti=icl

Sandbanks - early July - A longstanding tournament which has a 4 x 4 beach tournament.  It doesn't look like details of this year's tournament have been released just yet! Keep an eye on their website to look for the dates and for full details and how to enter - http://www.wessexvolleyball.com/2017-sandbanks-tournament


Bridlington - 14 and 15 July - Another 4 x 4 beach tournament on the beach in Bridlington.  Weather always seems to shine for this one along with the after party in the resident nightclub. Full details and how to enter is available on their website.


Whitefield - 21 to 22 July - One of the most popular summer tournaments - this year to be held at Bristol (rather than the traditional Bath Rugby Club). It's a popular tournament so sign up soon before it sells out!  Full details and how to enter is available on their website.

Cambridge - 11 to 12 August - Been on the tournament scene for a number of years, the Cambridge tournament is a 6 x 6 grass tournament played at Cambridge Rugby Club.  There is also a 2 x 2 tournament held on the same day.  Full details and how to enter is available on their website.

Richmond - They have announced their beach dates (see link).   They also normally hold a grass tournament on August bank holiday weekend but there is no mention of this on the website so not sure if that is still running - keep an eye on their website to see if it is planned or not.
