Relive the magic of the Cup and Grand Prix Finals
7th April 2020
The Cup Finals weekend is one of the highlights of the volleyball season and to help recreate some of that magic, we are dipping into the archives to bring you 3 historic matches – in real-time – on Saturday, 25th April.
Government measures to slow down the spread of the coronavirus have led to all Volleyball England events being cancelled up until the end of June – including the 2020 Cup Finals, which would have taken place on 25th and 26th April at the National Volleyball Centre.
In its place, replays of matches from 2015, 2016 and 2019 will be broadcast from Volleyball England’s Facebook page. This will not only allow the community to come together to watch volleyball, but for those new to the sport to potentially experience the thrill of a match for the first time.
The schedule for Saturday, 25th April will be as follows:
- 10:00 – 2015 Sitting Volleyball Grand Prix Final: East London Lynx vs Newcastle Staffs
- 12:00 – 2019 Women’s Cup Final: Team Northumbria vs Durham Palatinates
- 14:00 – 2016 Men’s Cup Final: IBB London Polonia vs Team Northumbria
Note: The Competitions Working Group is aiming to make a fair and transparent decision on how this season’s competitions will be concluded by the end of April.
