Ian Cheesbrough EVA ref of the year

Our regular Kings Langley Kings 1st Division referee has recently won the coveted referee of the year award from the England Volleyball Association. Ian has always been a great supporter of the club and Herts Volleyball Association, so we'd like to offer up our congratulations.

Referee of the Year: Ian Cheesbrough

Summer Volleyball with Kings Langley

The indoor competitve season is now done and through June, July and August we move to social volleyball only. It's a great opportunity to come and meet us if you're interested in joining the club in September. All sessions will be organised through our pages on https://www.meetup.com/KLVC-Volleyball-Meetup so if you're interested in playing please sign up.

We will be running two sessions every week.

Fixtures Meeting

Another great turn out for training on Sunday. Angelo will be opening early (this time at 3pm) to assist the beginners, so make sure you sign up for that here https://www.meetup.com/preview/KLVC-St-Albans-Beach-Volleyball-Meetup/events/243269816 so we know numbers.


Normal training runs from 5-7pm at RSS – no coach Trevor this week, so the session will be led by the rest of the experienced players.


A new season approaches

We’ve had a great summer on the beach courts in St Albans. Those Sunday sessions end next Sunday, but Thursdays will continue until the end of September.

From Sunday 3rd September, we’re back training indoors in readiness for the new season. Everybody is welcome and the first session is free. We haven’t decided on subs yet, but I expect them to increase to £75 twice per season to cover the increase in hall fees, but that covers all training and matches.

Kings Langley Tournament Cancelled

KLVC are cancelling the Kings Langley Volleyball Tournament, which was scheduled for this Saturday 27th May. Despite initial interest from 11 teams, only 5 teams entered - we blame the FA Cup! Please let your players know. Apologies to those players who were interested and we hope to run the tournament in this format some other time, which we'll discuss at the next HVA Committee meeting in June.

Club Champs 2.0

Another great turn out for our second Club Champs of the year, again organised by Richard. With 21 players, we had three teams in timed matches. Many thanks to Karen for scoring and for Carl as our referee. After some fierce games, the team captained by Angelo won the day and took away the coveted 14cm plastic trophy. Duncan S took server of the day and Angelo took passer of the day through votes by the rest of the players.

Club Mini Champs a great success

It was a really good turnout with 20 players playing in 3 teams. Richard had done a great job coordinating and organising things, even constructing really equal teams which meant all the matches were pretty close. But in the end it was obviously a fix (!) with Richard's team winning the final!

Duncan S was awarded player of the tournament (quiet and steady) as identified by Karl (ref) and Karen (scorer).

A really good night, which we'll be repeating again later in the season.
