Report by Erik Halberg

A brisk Saturday morning, and the even brisker sports hall of Tendring Technology College, played host to a National Volleyball League Division 1 matchup between Tendring Volleyball Club’s 1st team and the visiting Black Country 1st. Tendring burst out of the gates quickly with a cheeky ace from setter Derek Sullivan, and reached the first technical timeout with an 8-6 lead over Black Country. After the break Black Country fought their way back to take the lead after a string of Tendring passing and hitting errors, prompting Tendring’s coach Alex Porter to bring on setter Owen Lamb to reestablish connections with the hitters. Though the Lamb-led Tendring managed to close a six point deficit down to three, the Black Country squad refused to let their foot off the throttle and closed the set 25-22.

City of Salford 0 - 3 Tendring

Ladies With another good performance against a very strong Team Northumbria the previous day, it was now turn to travel to play Salford for the final game of the 2 game weekend. With a 2 and a half hour trip down from Newcastle the girls were ready.

The girls started how they finished the game before. Tired legs and long journeys real took its toll on the girls and they were slow out of the blocks. With errors playing a big start in the first set momentum was never gained and points were gifted to the opposition whilst their serve reception unit helped them run a good solid offence. Some good block defence 22-23 down in the first helped Tendring to clinch the first set!
