Mandurah Volleyball Association host WA teams for invitational competition

Volleyball teams from across the state took to the Mandurah Aqautic and Recreation Centre on the weekend for a two-day competition. 

Thirty-five teams – split into four divisions – took to the indoor volleyball courts for the Mandurah Volleyball Association’s Invitational. 

Association president Charlie Grigio said the event was hailed a success.

“It was sort of volleyball outside of volleyball,” he said.  

“Teams were able to verse teams that they wouldn't usually verse in their normal competitions.

“I think that's what sets it a part. 

“That and also the inclusivity and diversity of the event; it was open across all clubs. 

“And that's something we promote across our own organisation.”


Men’s A Grade was taken out by the ECU Chequers after they defeated Umo Trojans, 2-1. 

Most Valuable Player (MVP) was taken out by Alvin Goh from the Chequers. 

Men's A Reserves saw the Bertram Punjabi Club defeat  SpartanZ, 2-0, with Creaky Cronies’ Chris Day taking out MVP. 

Men's B Reserves resulted in Yeet Level >100 defeating The Mandurah Vet's, 2-0. MVP was awarded to Charlie Grigio from the Mandurah Vet's.

Meanwhile in the women's grade, 6 Pack defeated the Creaky Cronies, 2-0. Mandurah’s Toni Blanchard was named MVP.
