Join us at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre this weekend as Australia’s best volleyballers battle it out for the championship!
Uni Blues will be red-hot favorites to win a fourth consecutive title, after finishing the season home-and-away season unbeaten. The Victorian team had a 3-1, 3-0 win over Adelaide Storm in South Australia, and will now face the Sydney Amazons in the semi-finals.
The Queensland Pirates Men will be hunting to reclaim their title from 2013 and 2014, while the Women will be looking to recreate their success of 2012. With the Women on 10/0 and the Men on 13/1 win/loss records, the Pirates are poised for a huge finals series! The Queensland Pirates will take on the VVA Vultures in one semi-final, after the Victorian team fell over the line despite posting two 3-0 losses to the WA Hornets on the weekend.
The Sydney Amazons have ended the unbeaten run of the Queensland Pirates in the women’s Australian Volleyball League, and in doing so have booked themselves a place in this week’s finals, capping an incredible debut season for the new team.
The WA Pearls posted two comfortable 3-0 wins over the Victoria Volleyball Academy or VVA Vultures to lock up second place on the ladder and a semi-final match-up against the Pirates in Melbourne on Saturday, December 3. The Adelaide Storm will take on the Canberra Heat in this week’s other semi-final.
Tickets of Finals on Sunday are $5 at the door while entry is free on Saturday’s semis.
