All sets to be played to 25 points – no 2 clear points requirement in the 5th set.



MONDAY 15th OCTOBER 2017 (7pm – 10pm)

ALL teams MUST attend the meeting to make their fixtures if they intend to play in the MVL 2018/ 2019 Season.
Only in exceptional circumstances will teams be allowed to enter if they don’t attend, and a fine will be imposed.

Could teams please contact Brian Kendall ASAP as to which divisions they wish to play in 2018-19.
2 men’s & 2 women’s divisions are proposed. Normal automatic promotion & relegation will be applied, but this can be reviewed in exceptional circumstances.

Annual fees will remain the same:
Normal Team Affiliation:         £35                              New Teams:                £20
Surety (for New Teams):        £15                              Under 18 Teams:        £20

– These are payable at the meeting – if you require an Invoice in advance, please let me know.
– I am discussing a “block affiliation“ with Volleyball England for teams not in direct affiliation to VE. If they agree, this will cost an extra small fee but would hopefully include insurance.
