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.
