Indoor Volleyball League Climax

Perth’s recreational volleyball league teams met at Perth College on Sunday evening for their final round of fixtures for 2024.

With Ellen Ranklin’s Team Fife already assured of the league title there was nothing at stake except the displays of passion, fun and freedom of expression from players of all teams.

First up in the top six was second place Kinross against All Stars and this was very much a fun match with Kinross taking the first set, All Stars the second and Kinross the third. Marcus McNeill’s Nae Fear then recorded a narrow victory against Aberuthven Acers 25-19; 25-22. All Stars then overcame a stuffy Crieff side 25-22; 25-13.

Closest games of the evening were the last two. Firsty, Aberuthven Acers squeezed victory over Crieff 25-17; 18-25; 11-9. The final top 6 game was a classic between the league champions, Team Fife and previous winners Nae Fear. The Fifers took the first set 25-18 but Nae Fear fought back to level the match by taking the second set 25-19. The third set decider went to Fife with a 6-1 lead at the final whistle.

The bottom five teams also had fun as their end of season mantra with inhibitions thrown to the wind. Amanda Howie’s Tay Pearls won their first set against Ian McGrath’s Motley Crew but Crew fought back to lead the second set at full time 18-14. Crew’s match against Paris Diggers finished a draw with Diggers winning the first set 25-21 and Crew winning the second set 25-22. The Diggers match against Aberfeldy saw Diggers win the first set 25-18 with the Breadalbane side leading the second set 24-20 at full time. The young Kinross High School team finished their season with three games on the trot and although losing all three to Aberfeldy, Tay Pearls and Paris Diggers they have shown steady improvement throughout the season.

Thanks must be shown to the league organisers, website manager, fixtures secretary, league treasurer and all the players who did their bit in making the season a success by refereeing, line judging and scoring.

With summer just around the corner, hopefully, the focus shifts to outdoor volleyball and beach volleyball with the opportunity for all the indoor volleyballers to get outdoors and continue their fun.
