Sunday 20th  January 2013

The first Glasgow District Festival Tournament

A good day had by all……

Sunday 20th January 2013 saw a new venture for the  Glasgow District League.  Six teams took part on the first of the DL Festival Tournaments at the Kelvin Hall International Arena, and a very good time was had by all.

The teams were split into two pools for the round-robin phase of the competition.  Pool 1 saw Glasgow Mets play the ‘Recce White’ side in the first match, then the G-Pin Boys in the second, with the National League Club winning both.   G-Pin then went on to win their match against the Recce Blues,

In pool 2 Su Ragazzi scraped through the match against the ‘Recce White’ team, who then went on to record a win against the Glasgow Meteors.  The Meteors finished their series of matches against Su Ragazzi and showed significant progress by being in front in final set when the match time ran out……..

So, long time rivals Glasgow Mets and Su Ragazzi were to play in the final.  Before then there  were cross over games where the G-Pin Boys won against Recce White team, and the Recce Blues won while playing the Meteors.

The final matches saw the G-Pin Boys finish their day on a high by securing third place by winning their rematch against the Recce Blues, and Glasgow Mets winning the event in a well contested match against Su Ragazzi………..

That’s the information on what happened, but it does not capture the tone of the day.  The day was full of smiles and competition.  The day was full of effort and sharing.  The day was full of teams from all over the City playing volleyball,  and at the same time supporting each other.  The day was terrific. 

There were different styles of play, there were different uniform colours, there were different systems of play, there were different versions of ball handling skills, and point winning celebrations….and there was one sense of purpose – to share the experience with the other people in the Glasgow Volleyball Community.

The gym at the Kelvin Hall was filled with people.  Filled with players, with friends of the players, with the players’ kids, with families, with supporters, with people who wanted to contribute to the volleyball environment….they did, and it was terrific. 

They took photographs, they videoed sequences of play, they chatted and exchanged points of view, and all shared in the experience of playing volleyball – it was just great.  So congratulations and well done to all who participated,  and roll on the next Festival Tournament which will be at the KH on February 24th.
