It’s always a little sad to see the summer coming to an end, but the good news, is it will soon be the start of the new indoor volleyball season. At Ipswich Ravens, they have much to look forward to and building on the club’s growth over the last year, there will be something for everyone.
For the first time, their first team will be raising the standard of their competitive play, by entering the Suffolk League and/or the Essex League. Our new ladies team will compete in a new series of triangular tournaments against other women’s teams from around Suffolk.
Their junior boys will continue their development and they hope to see them in action in the Eastern Region junior teams which they qualified for last year, and the newest section of junior girls will progress through their specialist coaching which they began towards the end of last season. Alongside all of this, they will be entering mixed teams in the monthly Suffolk-wide indoor 6-a-side tournaments to be held this year, at Northgate School.
Of course our regular indoor training sessions will also continue; these take place twice a week on Saturdays from 2-4pm and Tuesdays from 7-9pm at St Alban’s School. If you are interested in giving them a try, whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced player, now is the ideal time to join in with many of the people who started playing during the summer and have found out for themselves that volleyball is great fun, and really good exercise too.
Ipswich Ravens will welcome any new players, male or female, experienced or complete beginner, and any age from teenagers upwards. We have qualified coaches who run our sessions with a mixture of training drills and friendly games, making them highly enjoyable while helping participants to improve their skills.
