Entries now open for HVA Grand Prix Series 2016/17

‘Entries now open for the HVA Grand Prix Series 2016/17’

The HVA is very excited to announce it has sourced a venue to accommodate a Grand Prix style indoor volleyball competition at Bay House School in Gomer Lane, GosportPO12 2QP.  
The Bay House venue is a brand new facility, with a wooden floor and viewing gallery and is very energy efficient.  There is more than enough space for two courts to be played simultaneously. In addition, they are very keen to host us and have offered us a fantastic deal for the coming season. 

We anticipate that the average cost per team will be in the region of £150 (which is less that half of the cost teams paid last year), but we also hope that on each Sunday teams will play 2 or 3 matches, offering even better value for money. 

However, due to the fact that some teams missed their obligations to play some games last season, we plan to invoice a higher amount at the start of the season, and the difference between the actual cost incurred and the initial invoice will be reimbursed at the end of the season.  Teams that do not fulfil their obligations will not have this ‘goodwill’ amount reimbursed. 

The target teams are generally those who currently play local league and have players aspiring to play national league, or who are even playing national league today. The two teams with the highest cumulative points total over the season will represent Hampshire at SEVA. 

Currently, we have booked 8 Sundays, from 1000 until 1700 as follows; 

Ladies:       9th October 2016, 27th November 2016, 12th February 2017 , 19th March 2017 
Men:         23rd October 2016, 4th December 2016, 29th January 2017, 2nd April 2017

Right now, we need a commitment from teams to enter, particularly as the opening fixtures are only a month away.  So, please respond with your team name, secretary and treasurer contact details (i.e. email addresses and phone numbers).  I should be grateful if you would send this information as soon as possible but not later than Friday 23rd September to Bev Cooper at the email address: hantssecretary@gmail.com (see Cc box above for ease). Subsequently, we will announce the format and fixtures etc.
