First games of the season

The BVA League season has started and 4 Oxford teams were in action Sunday 16 October.

OVC Men Team 1 got off to a great start in the BVA league

The Mens 1 team started their campaign in Basingstoke, trying to improve on their Bronze medal from last season. The OVC team mainly represented by the usual suspects: Rune, Neil, Gerard, Steve, Jon, Martijn, but also a welcome debut from Jeremy.

The 1st match against Reading University. We played very steady and consistent in the first set and won 25-7. In the second set we gave a few points away but managed to keep our level up to win 25-12. We played some good volleyball and especially Rune and Jeremy in the middle put away some nice hits. MVP as voted by the opposition: Martijn.

The 2nd match against Basingstoke. This team had some more hitting power, which we matched and exceeded by some 'early season' signs of confidence and good defence within the team! A good all-round performance got us the 2-0 victory, with great team spirit and trust on court. Steve excelled in his newly found position as opposite and was voted MVP. Set scores: 25-17, 25-18.

It is early days, but we are top of the table!
