The first ever Nottingham Riviera Amateur Volleyball tournament ended last week with a close fought finals night. For the last time this summer, the Riviera in Nottingham’s Market Square was turned into a beach volleyball court and four teams who had won the group stages held over August were competing for the top prize.


Eventual winners of the tournament were Nottingham Rockets One, who put in a convincing performance having not dropped a set for the whole tournament. After a very tight match with only a single point between the two teams, Sport Park took the runners up spot in the fading light. Third place then went to Nottingham Uni I. The last spot in the finals was taken by West Brigdford based Casualties 4Skins.


The Nottingham Riviera also ran a beginners and business tournament for less experienced players, holding the final the night before the amateur competition. First place went to My Name is Khan who won four flights to Tenerife courtesy of Riviera sponsors Jet 2. Runners up Art Designs also bagged themselves two flights to the Spanish island after narrowly losing out on the winners spot. Third place went to crowd pleasers Top Guns, who not only had the authentic film outfits but also the celebrations!


The Riviera beach is now packed away for 2010, but we look forward to welcoming the Mellor Group and the beach volleyball back next year!
