Volleyball: Badgers show the way for the men

Have your say

Sheffield Hallam men’s volleyball team begin their Super 8 season against Malory Eagles London on Saturday hoping to emulate the women’s team’s unbeaten start to the season.

The ‘Badgers’ have picked up victories against Leeds and Northampton so far and play Blackhill at All Saints (1.45pm) before the men take to the court.

“It has been a pleasing start,” said Steve McKeown coach of the women’s team. “We are probably two or three players short of being genuine promotion contenders, but we currently have a nice blend of established and experienced stalwarts with younger players who are keen to make their mark in the game.”
