Whitefield Volleyball Tournement

This year, as ever, Riga descended on Bath for the annual Whitefield tournament. Always a tournament where the cultural City of Bath mixes with some fun volleyball. This year Riga had two teams: Riga ladies and Riga Phoenix (a team in conjunction with Rugby Phoenix our partner Club). 

Riga ladies were in Womens Division 1. A couple of drop outs and Mummy Jayne's recent hip operation (she did not play at all honest Martin!) meant the girls had limited options so were forced to pull together as a team. They lost the first game narrowly and this spurred them on. When Jayne returned from her shopping trip to lend some support and tactics from the side lines the girls ploughed on and soon found themselves at the end of the day with tired legs but with only one loss meaning they went into the Cup competition on Sunday.
