Beach Volleyball

On 22nd May, a female pair and 4 male pairs of Tiffin’s volleyball cohort were invited to ACS Cobham’s annual beach volleyball tournament, hosted at the home of SideOut Volleyball in Leyton, East London. Anja E and Florence I triumphed to beat out 33 other female pairs to win the top division of 5, in what can only be described as a display of nonchalant dominance. Even more impressive considering that all of the other schools attending (bar one) are private schools.

Ben S and Sebastian M lost out 21-15 in the final of the top male division, placing 2nd overall out of 25 male pairs in attendance. A close margin considering the pair they were playing against a pair who attend a volleyball-specific academy. Neel P and Joseph V-G progressed fantastically through the male second division, only for Neel to land on a sand mound with a straight leg and be wheeled off with horrendous cramp. Step in Ivan G, who subbed for Neel and progressed with Joseph to place 4th in the second division, narrowly missing out on 3rd place 21-19 after a comeback from being 8 points down. Also fighting in the male category were Siddharth S with Sami T, and Ivan with Alex A. A superb day was had by all, laying the groundwork for what will hopefully be an even busier season of volleyball next academic year.
