Brian Kendall Cup (MVL teams)
Sunday, 2 July 2023 10:00
This event is a commemoration of Brian Kendall’s contribution to Merseyside League Volleyball over more than 40 years. It is intended as a tournament to close off the season. It’s a handicap tournament designed to involve as many MVL teams as possible and to give everyone a chance to win a trophy at the end of the season. Wirral will enter two womens teams.
A 4v4 beach competition at Crosby Beach (next to Crosby Leisure Centre.
Unfortunately the weather was poor with a stiff breeze and white tops on the waves. Several teams weren’t happy about playing in these conditions so we had to cnacel the main event. A hardier group decided that they’d stay and play on so we were able to run a more restricted mixed tournament with 6 mixed teams. The link below is a report on the event.
