Update: 1:35PM WITH a combination of young colts and some veteran war-horses, the New Zealand Men’s Volleyball Team are looking forward to the upcoming 2016 Inter-Zonal Volleyball championships.
Hitting the Vodafone Arena in a blow-out session today, NZ Men’s Volleyball head coach Colin Redpath said they were very excited to be a part of the tournament.
“Probably four weeks ago, most of these players were playing against each other in our club national so it’s been a bit of a gap since we’ve played a bit of volleyball but we are looking to improve as they week goes on,” Redpath said.
He said their present group of players would also be representing NZ in the upcoming world cup qualifiers.
“They are a good bunch of guys and what?s nice is that we are bringing on some younger players who are coming through our junior programs so yes, we have some youth and some old-aged experienced players.”
The tournament is expected to begin at the Vodafone Arena tomorrow at 10am.
