Rotterdam Indoor Volleyball Tournament (Apr 13-14 weekend) 6x6 mixed team

  • to

  • This location is shown only to members

  • Hello,

    One of the very few indoor social volleyball tournaments there is. Cerus had a team go last year and they had loads of fun, with great games on court and a party on Saturday night. There are teams from all over Europe and this is the 31st year of the tournament.

    The Facebook page for the tournament is here and pictures from the tournament last year are here

    Background -

    Based on the team that went last year, we have 1 team already signed up to go - Anna, Jana, Karin, Silvana, Paul, Rene and Rahul. Since we have so many new members who've joined Cerus over the past year, it would be great if we had another team as well.

    Tournament format -

    1. Teams need to have a minimum of 3 girls on the court at any time. So the team size we're looking for is 4 guys and 4 girls, to cover for any injuries, etc.

    2. All teams play in a common pool on day 1 and based on their performance are put in 1 of 2 pools on day 2.

    3. The format is such that all teams get to play a substantial number of matches on Saturday & Sunday, plus there's a party on Saturday night.

    4. The level of play is intermediate. Next point is this is a tournament! So probably not great if you are a beginner. Only join if you have some experience playing and playing under pressured environments! ...that being said this is really fun.

    Logistics and costs -

    1. Entry costs €55 / person for the tournament which includes - airport transfers, meals on both days, party, tournament t shirt and space to sleep in the sports hall (you've to bring your own sleeping bag).

    2. Of course you're free to stay at a nearby hostel/hotel (like the other team is doing) since it might be difficult to get any sleep in the common hall. Hostel/hotel costs between £20-25 per night per person.

    3. Getting there and back - On an average travel to and fro (flight/ferry) comes to £150 or so.

    We will need to make a team soon to give enough time for travel arrangements and registration, so RSVPs close on Sunday night.

    Hopefully there will be enough people interested to make a second team for one of the very few indoor tournaments there are! According to the people who went last time, it's loads of fun! Any questions, please ask.

    PS: Since meetup doesn't allow gender-based RSVP limits, the first 4 guys/girls who RSVP will be in. Please check that there are respective male/female places available before RSVPing. When either reaches 4, it's full up.

    Please note: Unless there are a minimum of 4 girls and 3 guys RSVP'ing, we won't be able to make a second team.

    Thanks Rahul for leading this. The next point is this is a tournament! so probably not great if you are a beginner. Only join if you have some experience playing and playing under pressured environments! ...that being said this is really fun.

    :-) sounds great - just signed up. Probably going to choose to take the car/Eurotunnel option, leaving Friday morning to get some sightseeing in Rotterdam on Friday, come back Sunday evening. Might be a cheaper/more flexible option if someone wants to share costs? happy to have a car full of ladies too :-))
