Indoor Open League Format:
We start at 13:00 sharp. Everyone needs to arrive on time; if you are more than 5 minutes late, you won't be able to take part. On arrival, you will be put into 5 mixed teams of 6 players (3 men, 3 women where possible); some teams may have a substitute if numbers don't add up (substitutes will be roll on, roll off).
Each week you will play in a different team with different players.
Matches will be two sets to 15 points and then one to 10 points if needed.
Match rules will be regular indoor volleyball rules.
Each week teams will play 4 matches.
In each match played, one point will be given to each player for each set won.
The points you earn each week in your different teams will be recorded against your name on a league table of all the players in the league (three league tables: Beginner, Local League, National League).
At the end of the 2021 season (end of December) awards will be presented to the players with the most points in each league.
If the open league is successful/popular, we will run a 2022 season January - April, with awards presented at an end of season awards night of some kind.
