Monday marked a sizzling start to the Indoor Hardcourt Busselton Volleyball season with a competitive yet fun atmosphere, with a thriller between A-grade teams Walk the Plank and Sugar and Spice.

One highlight was a spike through the middle by Josh Alcorn of Sugar and Spice. However, great play by Rob Kinninmont and teammate Rhys Hitching helped Walk the Plank win 25:24, 25:18, 16:17.

Scavengers won by a narrow margin against Notorious D.I.G. 25:22, 24:25, 13:10, with the stand-out player of the match, Dale Malet, displaying great setting and a slingshot spike.

In A-reserve, Stay Hard won a close match against Scallywags, locked at one set each.

Stay Hard drove the win home at 17-15 in a close deciding set.

On Monday night, training for the Busselton WA Volleyball League began with new coach Ayumi Shinjo.

Busselton Volleyball Association Committee Member Deanne Smith said the top quality competition started soon with the team excited for the new season under a new coach.

“Home games against strong Perth teams will be at the Geographe Leisure Centre and times will be on our Facebook page if anyone would like to come down and support the team,” she said.

The Women’s Volleyball Competition is back on Mondays at 6pm at Cornerstone Christian College, Busselton.
