Ipswich Ravens Volleyball

This last month saw another big entry in the popular 6-a-side indoor series held at Northgate School, with six teams in Div 1 including Ravens men, and eight teams in Div 2 including their ladies. The men’s team included four of their improving juniors and remarkably managed to win their initial pool with exciting victories against local rivals Ipswich and Stowmarket.

Ipswich Ravens Volleyball

The new indoor season is now well under way. The Ravens entered two teams in the monthly Suffolk Indoor 6-a-side tournament held at Northgate School. They continued our emphasis on developing their juniors and ladies in particular.

The boys performed admirably with a win against Ipswich 2nds and narrow…
