A MEN’S Wee County volleyball team has clinched its first ever major victory after a victorious weekend in Perth.

Clackmannanshire Volleyball Club, also known as the Clackers, pulled off the historic win to become Men’s Division Three champions at The Scottish Open Volleyball Tournament held last weekend in Perth.

The elated side won all of their matches against some extremely tough competition, and despite some trying weather conditions, the team managed to come out on top to be crowned 2019 winners.

The Scottish Open Volleyball Tournament is the largest annual Volleyball Tournament in Great Britain and attracts around 1,000 players from around the world. It’s played on 36 outside courts on the North Inch, a large parkland setting in the centre of Perth.

Not only does the competition attract teams from around the United Kingdom but also from Russia, USA, Czech Republic, Poland, Australia, Belgium, France, Italy, Netherlands, Ireland, Venezuela and the Faroes Islands.

Niall Hammond, club secretary spoke of his delight after the victory.

He said: “We are thrilled to have won, but are always keen to enrol new players and keep the momentum going for future competitions, all standards of players are very welcome.”

The club plays every Monday night at Alva Academy from 8pm until 9.45pm.
