You are here

Team spirit was at all time high at the recent Dorset & Hampshire College’s Recreational Volleyball Tournament supported by Volleyball England. The competition took place at Peter Symonds College in Winchester with six colleges taking part. The Bournemouth & Poole College entered 2 teams and both did very well with the B team coming in third place and the A team winning the competition.

The students who entered the competition have been training together since September and attend a weekly volleyball club at Lansdowne Sports Hall. The tournament gave them the opportunity to play volleyball at a competitive level and really show case their skills.

Bournemouth & Poole College Sport Maker, Sam Brown, said,

‘All the student’s gave their all on the day. The standard of play was very high. They came away from the tournament happy, having worked well as a team whilst having fun.’

The names of the students in the teams were;

A Team

Anna Maria Eisendle, Mattia Franzoi, Jordan Rathbone, Julia Soltys, Kornelia Niewiadomska, Christian Gartner and Wakana Kaitani.

B team

Laura Wimmer, Anita Wieser, Marvin Spitaler, Onyebuchi Okolo, Alexander Husenbeth, Melanie Gamper, Dagne Beikmane and Marion Blaas.

Sport is an important part of college life with the aim of increasing social participation in sports and physical activity amongst students. Recreational sports are encouraged and include a range of opportunities, including football, water sports, martial arts, archery, rock climbing and much more. Many of the team sports offer the chance to compete at a local or national level.
