2021 Tournament Cancelled

It is with heavy hearts that we have decided to cancel the 2021 Scottish Open Volleyball Tournament, which was due to be played on Saturday 11 September, mainly due to the current spike in Covid numbers across the country which we did not anticipate. We apologise for any inconvenience this decision causes you and your team. Full refunds of entry fees will be issued over the next few days.

The last thing we want is that our organisation could be responsible for contributing towards a further rise in Covid numbers across the country, thus putting our health service under even more strain.

We thank teams for their continued support of our annual event – I know how everyone was so looking forward to meeting up again on the North Inch for a fun day of grass volleyball at this year’s tournament.

We do hope that teams will support the 2022 tournament which is scheduled for the weekend of 28th & 29th May.

2020 Tournament Cancelled

We are sorry to announce the cancellation of the 2020 Scottish Open Volleyball Tournament.

In these unprecedented times, this decision has been taken out of our hands by circumstances totally outwith our control.

Teams who have already paid their entry fees for the tournament will have these monies refunded over the next week.

We also apologise for any teams who have already made travel arrangements and/or accommodation bookings.

We hope you all come through these troubled times unscathed and look forward to welcoming you to the 2021 tournament which is scheduled to take place on 29th & 30th May.

33rd Scottish Open Volleyball Tournament 25th & 26th May 2019

It will soon be time to dust off the sun hats, knee pads and polish the sun glasses ready for this year’s annual outdoor tournament (and don’t forget the sunscreen) despite politicians across the planet currently causing havoc and hostility rather than harmony and humanity. Our political leaders are being more “fiends” than “friends” with the missing letter R showing they appear to care less about Responsibility for people’s Rights.

But fear not, you can cast you eyes to the heavens and play volleyball with us at this year’s Scottish Open Volleyball Tournament and forget all the troubles of the world.

Our wonderful sport, volleyball, helps break down society’s barriers with our annual tournament providing fun, friendly competition catering for all levels and abilities.

Our 33rd tournament, once again, confirms its status as the number one tournament in the UK with even more overseas teams already booked to travel and savour the unique atmosphere that the tournament provides. More than one hundred teams will again converge on Perth’s North Inch for a weekend of sporting fun over seven different categories of competition for men, women and mixed volleyball.

So spread the word that entries are now open for this year’s tournament and we look forward to welcoming our regulars as well as a number of newcomers to SOVT 2019.
