Calling all volleyball, table tennis enthusiasts


Thursday 8 March 2017

ARE you one of the many people who enjoy playing volleyball and table tennis but haven't done so for years for one reason or another? Or are you a serious player looking to practice?

Either way, the Casino Indoor Sports Stadium is the place for you to be on Saturday 17 March when the inaugural Richmond Valley Volleyball and Table Tennis Tournament gets underway at 3.30pm.

Enthusiasts have until Thursday 15 March to sign up for the tournament, which will include divisions for all ages and all skill levels. Cost is $5 per person.

It will be a social fun day with entertainment and food and drinks to help raise funds for the Stadium's special needs groups.

Stadium Manager Ben West said the aim was to keep the tournament fun and fair for everyone, so both social and newer players could enjoy the experience.

Mr West said as well as raising funds, it would also be a great experience for those involved and he'd love to get a few more teams signed up.

"Let's celebrate St Patrick's Day, help raise money for our special needs groups and grow our volleyball and table tennis community," he said.

"You can form teams with your friends and family, and spectators are guaranteed to see plenty of action.

"So let's have a ball."

The Casino Indoor Sports Stadium is also seeking sponsorship for the tournament which will include:

  • Naming rights for the tournament

  • Your business name on trophies and/or medallions

  • Opportunity to present on behalf of your business

  • Promotion of your business on social media

  • Coverage on local TV and in local newspapers

Cost of this one-off event is $500.
