WOW WOW - OXFORD LADIES - WOW WOW!!!

Two great victories on Sunday the 15th February for the Oxford Ladies vs Norfolk and Telford!

The Oxford Ladies did a great job last weekend! They fought really hard against the two teams! The Ladies played a slow first set that was useful to warm-up. Thanks to very good serves, setting and hitting and better receiving technique, Oxford won the two matches without giving any sets away to their opponents!

These two victories represent a very important result for the Oxford Ladies who are now at the top of the League with 30 points! With four games to go before the end of the season, only one team is theoretically able to catch up with Oxford Ladies. 

Other great news were 2 MVPs for the team's setter Sonia who now tops the MVP table for the division.

Taking the beach courts to the next stage!

Club representatives have been busily liaising with Oxford City Council and other interested stakeholders to determine the best site for our beach courts. We are pleased to announce that we are now entering the planning permission process to build two courts on a site in Cutteslowe and Sunnymeade Park (http://www.oxford.gov.uk/PageRender/decLP/2_Cutteslowe_and_Sunnymead_occw.htm). We will be sure to keep you updated on how things progress - and don't forget to check out the Support Beach Volleyball in Oxford page on Facebook too!

Oxford Ladies vs Telford: 3-1!!!!

Great game played by both teams!

The first set was a warm up for the Ladies who did not have their competitive spirit burning inside them yet! Do not worry readers.... the Ladies reacted well to the situation, fighting point for point from the second set on!

Great serving, passing and blocking. Good hitting, apart from the first set, when the Ladies also had some difficulties in covering tips and "unpredictable dirty and crazy" balls. Sonia's sets and some unexpected second touches were great!

Memorable event of the day: Sonia's face had a 'close contact' with the court floor (or with the punch of another "unidentified" team mate on the floor)! After few minutes of suffering, like a heroine, she was able to come back and play!!! For this reason (and not only for that!) she won the MVP!!!

The story for today is finished.... ready to see what will happen in two weeks!
