This week Tendring VC's super 8 women's team took on London Pulsepoint Orcas in their third game of the season so far. With the Orcas currently standing in fourth place in the league.

In the first set our girls pushed the Orcas to 25-20. Consistent passing from the Tendring passing unit allowed the setter Jess Lane to distribute the ball well amongst her attackers.

Sunday the 1st of November saw Tendring Heatec, 28 games unbeaten; take on Southend Comets in Southend. The late weekend fixture began with Southend Comets starting without their normal setter. Southend started slowly, allowing Heatec to accumulate points as a result of confusion within their own ranks. The fog encompassing all of Essex seemed to also be blinding Southend’s efforts on the court. Heatec’s setter Nick Davies spread the play well, particularly finding Simon Ibbotson very well.  Good backcourt work from stand in coach Neil Masters contributed to Heatec’s strong performance. Heatec were well organised throughout the first set and comfortably saw the Comets of 25-21.

Tendring sent shockwaves throughout Super 8's and Division 1 of the NVL this weekend with an assertive match against previously #1 ranked Docklands VC.

Hot from the start, Tendring hustled out to a 8-4 lead through a series of strong team blocking, attacking through the middle, and a service run by Yiannakkos. Docklands appeared unprepared for the aggressive Tendring onslaught throughout the majority of the first set. Alex Porter would find the sport court troublesome as he averaged .75 trips per set. Tendring would build a seemingly insurmountable 23-18 lead through excellent execution of the middle bic attack, efficient hitting from Robert Chilcoat and Alex Porter, and superior aggressiveness at the net. In spite of excellent defense from Captain Dove and Yiannakkos, a series of Tendring service errors and shaky passing against a solid Docklands close would see the score at 26-24, Docklands ahead 1-0.

Tendring went into their first home fixture of the season full of confidence following their back to back wins the previous weekend. As ever Tendring had strong home support with over 60 people present at Tendring Teccnology College and a further 180 people watching via the live stream (available at www.tendringvolleyball.com).

Tendring made a sluggish start to the first set and quickly went 3 points behind. However it did not take long for Tendring to find their rhythm and some clever hitting from Dacey and Guimond saw Tendring take the lead at the first technical timeout. A combination of tactical serving and solid block defence saw Tendring take the first set 25-20.
