The 2017 Volleyball season saw the start of a new and exciting league involving the BSB, the Bahrain School and St Christopher’s. Each school entered two teams, apart from St Christopher’s who entered three teams, and played a series of Festivals, with the season concluding in a dramatic final tournament. Teams grew from strength to strength over the weeks, skill levels became more diverse and teamwork matured. The A Team deservedly won every Festival, with the B Team eventually taking second place in front of BSB. However, in the first game of the Final Tournament, the B Team played against the A Team. The B Team, under the guidance of Mr Tayler, kept their cool, worked steadily as a team and defeated the A Team. It was a tremendous display of teamwork, which is undoubtedly what led them to their victory. This became the kick-start the A Team needed and, with a new sense of desire and urgency, went on to win the rest of the matches and the overall tournament. Only on points difference did St Christopher’s B take 2nd place, with BSB taking a very worthy 3rd place. A tremendous season for all concerned and one the boys should be very proud of. Most Improved Player of the A Team is Jordan Smit, B Team is Digby Rushton and the C Team Joel Watts.

We had a very successful first opening tournament at Bahrain School. Both St Christopher’s A and B teams played some skilful Volleyball. Sarah and Sienna were on top form with their serves and so were Charlotte and Patricia.
