What a great day!
It is such a pleasure to see so many people enjoying this fine sport which, since its creation in the late 19th century has become the world 5th most popular sport, played all over the world, and most importantly – here in Lambeth!
I would like to take a moment to thank all the Little Giants members: the adult players, our junior members and their parents, and the volleyball community at large for their co-operation and support.
An extra special thanks to all the volunteers and helpers here, without you none of this would be possible.
Our gratitude also goes out to:
– The management at the Brixton Recreation centre for their continuous support.
– Ms Sue Storey, CEO of Volleyball England for accepting our invitation.
– and to Mr Charlie Orton, the President of the London Volleyball Association, for his unwavering support and encouragement.
On this cold day, it is heart-warming to see such great sportsmanship, camaraderie, and teamwork.
Sport has a unique ability to bring us together, make new friends, and provide us a focus outside of our daily responsibilities.
So thank you, to everyone who took part today, for bringing such energy and sprit to the court and for your part in making today such a success.
