Ms Callaway and I took four teams to compete in the inaugural JUVO Volleyball tournament hosted by Grey Court School last Thursday. Over 40 teams were entered into the tournament from all over London. All of RPA’s teams acquitted themselves brilliantly throughout the tournament and improved their skills over the course of the day. It was fantastic to witness their excellent teamwork and etiquette, which was a credit to RPA.
The Year 7 boys team improved the most, and did themselves proud considering they were up against Y8s for all of their matches (and were at a significant height disadvantage!)
Team: Argend, Asher, Phoenix, Luke
The Year 9 boys team only lost one match - which was a nail-biter against Hampton Boys - and made it to the third and fourth play-off. They too were playing against older pupils so they will be favourites for next year’s tournament!
Team: Billy, Leo, Mason, Fred
The Year 7 girls won their tournament, culminating with a tense 29-28 victory over Feltham in the final! They also played against Year 8s!
Team: Anya, Jade, Eve, Charlotte
The Year 10 boys also won their tournament, finishing undefeated in their 6 matches! Their standard of play was simply awesome throughout!
Team: Leo, Jeremiah, Tristan, Alex
Congratulations to all involved!
