The 31st Scottish Open Volleyball Tournament

Last year’s S.O.V.T. was a classic in many ways and now we invite your participation, along with your fellow team-mates, to make the 31st S.O.V.T. another classic.

The camaraderie of the Scottish Open is unique in volleyball circles with many teams returning year after year, new teams coming on board as the word spreads, as well as teams of individuals, families and work groups who form especially for our weekend extravaganza.

Over 100 teams came along last year with the tournament again proving the largest to be held in the U.K. There are seven levels of competition with our mixed section catering for almost half of the total entries over three divisions from beginner to very experienced.

Teams from near and far will again centre on the Fair City of Perth over the last weekend of May, for many the Monday also being a holiday from work, gives them more time to recover from the weekend festival of volleyball.

Up to forty outdoor courts will be set up on Perth’s famous North Inch with camping and car parking also available on the adjacent grass space. Indoor shower and toilet facilities are available at Bell’s Sports Centre, the operational hub of the tournament over the weekend. Snacks and meals are also available in and around the Sports Centre.

Take advantage of our “early bird” entry fee and get your players signed up now, just in case another team snaps them up in the end of season “transfer window!”

Our small team of experienced volunteers look forward to welcoming you and your team-mates to Perth for what is sure to be another memorable weekend of volleyball.
