It’s back to nor­mal

came across is that some of the clubs were not fully ap­prised what the is­sues were and it be­came ob­vi­ous that the var­i­ous groups who had signed the let­ter had vary­ing agenda.

Am­i­ca­bly re­solved

“I think that ev­ery­thing has been re­solved am­i­ca­bly. You see the teams that would’ve been protest­ing are now on the court play­ing and that is good to see so we ex­pect the league should be fin­ish­ing as nor­mal,” he added.

It was the very peace­ful and swift con­clu­sion to a mat­ter that seem­ingly stemmed from the BVA’S de­ci­sion to re­sume a very con­tentious match be­tween ri­vals Charg­ers and Dea­cons.

Ref­eree Kirk Hinds blew off the con­test in Charg­ers’ favour when Dea­cons threat­ened to walk off the court fol­low­ing the ex­pul­sions of An­drew Culpep­per and Ron­ald Rice.

The BVA’S com­pe­ti­tion jury then ruled that the game be con­tin­ued from the sec­ond set af­ter judg­ing that Culpep­per’s ac­tions did not merit dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion.

But that cor­re­spon­dence didn’t reach the clubs be­fore they is­sued a let­ter to the BVA ask­ing for clar­ity on the rul­ing be­fore they played an­other match.

Charg­ers, Foun­da­tion United and All Stars did not turn up at Old­bury last week Mon­day, and Charg­ers were again a no-show for Wed­nes­day’s resched­uled fix­ture with Dea­cons.

Good to go

“The meet­ing had an out­come. It might not have been favourable one way or the next but out of the meet­ing it was agreed we will get back to play­ing games. So it is what it is. So I will say that ev­ery­one is good to go,” said Charg­ers pres­i­dent Dale Ad­di­son.

“I am glad vol­ley­ball has started back for peo­ple that want to play. I didn’t think we should have to play over that Dea­cons match but at the end of the day it’s not up to me.”
