The Mix League team started this year is continuing their march towards the Mix 1 level. With recent 2-0 wins against Enghave VK and RS Rødovre Volley they advanced to the 1st place in the Mix 1 kval. with incredible win-lose ratio of 7-1. With a little help of other results, the promotion can become a fact already upcoming Sunday, March 13th.
March 5th, DTU Volley sent 3 teams to participate in the Alternative tournament organised in Sundby Idrætspark, Amager. Huge congratulations to the candies-winning teams of DTU-3 (who managed to get 4 consecutive wins!) and DTU-2 (who beat the DTU-1 team in the final). As a consolation to DTU-1, we can report that they didn’t lose a single serving draw throughout the whole tournament!
We are not planning any rest though! April is going to bring us another Amager chance for candies, the two-day DSM tournament and the long-awaited international tournament in Munich. Stay tuned for updates!
Finally, the date for DTU Volley Summer Tournament has been announced! So save June 4th in your calendar, join the Facebook event and await further information. We already have almost 400 interested participants. The last year’s record is in danger and you can help us break it!
Have we mentioned that DTU Volley is not only about volleyball itself? Still in January, a 10-person representation of the club took part in the PF Skitur. We really hope to beat that result next year. Furthermore, except for weekly Friday social gatherings, we held a couple of birthday parties and the first DTU Volley Bar Crawl ever. More than 15 players visited all the Friday bars around DTU Lyngby campus and had massive amount of fun. If it can be any better, it will definitely happen at the newly announced DTU Volley Påskefrokost, which will be held April 1st. You can find more details on our DTU Volley Players Facebook group.
Last, but not least, for the first time ever DTU Volley has an official mascot! Meet Shuffle, the Most Valuable Panda! Shuffle’s already been with us to some of the league games and is planning to continue our players in all upcoming tournaments.
