Men 1 top the league!

posted 21 Jan 2012, 13:00 by Web Admin


Nottingham Rockets Men's first team are now officially top of the league, less than a year after winning promotion to Division 2N! They clinched the top spot with an easy win this afternoon against league strugglers Leeds. Georg also tops the division MVP table with 5 votes, congratulations!
Their next match is hugely important, as it's a home game against their main league rivals Danes Watford. Save the date: Saturday the 28th of February at 14.45!  Danes currently sit below Rockets but have a game in hand, so the result could decide the eventual league winners. It's set to be a tough game, Rockets beat Danes away 3 - 2 in October, but 2011's National Shield Winners have several ex England internationals in their squad and have proven they can rise to the big game.
Women 1 are also in NVL action tomorrow, away at RAF Hawks, taking on Hawks and Wirral both of whom they have previously beaten in 3 sets. They look to hold onto their second spot in the league, ahead of their next home game and top of the league clash against Warwick Riga on the 19th of February.
