VVL TEAMS AT BASCO BRUNSWICK

Grab your team mates and get along to Basco Brunswick (307-311 Sydney Road, Brunswick) this Friday night (29th may) from 6pm onwards for tapas and drinks. It would be great to see all the teams represented to celebrate the halfway mark of the VVL season.

SUCCESS AT JUNIOR TOURNAMENT

Our newly formed junior boys team won Gold on the weekend at the Moonee Valley Championships. Coached by Garang, the team improved over the course of the tournament.

GOLD MEDAL BOYS

The club also fielded two Under 16 and one Under 15 girls team and they were all unlucky not to make the finals. All the players and coaches enjoyed the tournament and are all looking forward to the next one.
