Eight teams participated in Topspin Volleyball’s final co-ed 6s indoor volleyball tournament on Sunday, December 11th.
Seven local teams and one team travelling from Courtney participated in the one day tournament. “The calibre and height of the players seem to get higher and higher as we move into the third year of hosting indoor co-ed 6s tournaments” says Bruce Kwan, one to the organizers for Topspin Volleyball.
“We had several former college players from Malaspina College, Camosun College, and even a player who participated with the Team Canada Men’s Volleyball team in the recent 2011 Pan Am Games playing in this tournament. Needless to say, the level of competition was quite high”, says Kwan. The final match went to three sets. Charles Parkinson, head coach of the Camosun College Men’s Volleyball program and former Team Canada Men’s Volleyball captain, watched his son Devon Parkinson help Family Jules to capture the tournament win with a third set final score of 15-13.
