Num­bers needed for vol­ley­ball comp

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

WHIT­SUN­DAY res­i­dents have started ral­ly­ing in­ter­ested play­ers and are call­ing for more to come for­ward in or­der to re­launch a mixed in­door vol­ley­ball com­pe­ti­tion at the Whit­sun­day PCYC.

Whit­sun­day PCYC branch sup­port of­fi­cer Tim Mar­shall wel­comed the idea but said it would be up to com­mu­nity mem­bers to put their hand up to get the ball rolling.

“Last time it ran we didn’t have num­bers and it belly flopped af­ter the first two or three nights so we would need at least four teams of six a-side to make a de­cent com­pe­ti­tion out of it,” he said.

Mr Mar­shall said more than 20 peo­ple had reg­is­tered their in­ter­est since July but asked for play­ers to come for­ward once more to get a com­pe­ti­tion up and run­ning within the next few weeks.

Can­non­vale res­i­dent Michelle Pelzer posted a mes­sage on her per­sonal Face­book page ask­ing for in­ter­ested peo­ple to come for­ward on Septem­ber 29, and re­ceived con­fir­ma­tion from more than 10 lo­cal play­ers who would like play in a weekly com­pe­ti­tion.

“I would like to see vol­ley­ball up and run­ning again not only for the so­cial as­pect of it but also be­cause a num­ber of peo­ple have ex­pressed that they don’t want to train in a gym and would pre­fer to be en­gaged in a team sport,” she said.

At this stage the com­pe­ti­tion could be held on ei­ther a Mon­day or Wed­nes­day evening.

Play­ers want­ing to reg­is­ter their in­ter­est for vol­ley­ball and avail­abil­ity can do so by con­tact­ing the Whit­sun­day PCYC on 4948 1144.
