The NEVZA General Assembly 2021 was held in Katowice prior to the CEV Congress and the finals in EuroVolley Men. It was the first physical meeting for more than two years. All participating countries were very enthusiastic to come back after the pandemic.

CEV board members Eric Adler, DEN, and Michel Everaert, NED, were also participating in the meeting and contributed to the discussions. The upcoming events in the three disciplines was discussed, the two under-age volleyball starting this autumn. A special start-up deposit of 2,500 EUR was decided in order to encourage the members to participate in as many competitions as possible.
Lennart Neovius and Jussi Jokinen were re-elected for the coming two years.

After a long period with closed borders in the NEVZA countries, the first volleyball tournaments will now be played. First of all, four teams in age-group U17 boys and girls will compete in Ikast, Denmark. The host, Norway, Faroe Islands and Island will show their skills during three days, 18th-20th October.

The second post-pandemic tournament is the under-age U19 volleyball competition in Rovaniemi, Finland on October 29th-31st.

Several other initiatives are in the planning phase, therefore we can look forward to an interesting volleyball year withing NEVZA and Europe.

NEVZA Under 19 Championships in Kettering ENG

Sunday saw the climax of a brilliant three days of volleyball as the National Volleyball Centre (NVC) hosted the NEVZA Under 19 Championships.

Teams came from Denmark, Faroe Islands, Iceland, Norway and Sweden to compete and superb peformances from the England teams capped an excellent tournament.

Sweden took gold in the men’s tournament, while Denmark took the women’s title. Both finals were classics as the winning teams recovered from two sets down to take the glory.

England meanwhile achieved a brilliant bronze in the men’s draw, while the women fell agonisingly short of a medal as they put on a superb performance.

This year was the second consecutive year the NVC has hosted made a great success of hosting the NEVZA Under 19 championships. An army of volunteers gave up their time to help and without them it wouldn’t have been such an excellent event.
