Thirty years ago the first Scottish Open Volleyball Tournament was held in Perth with five indoor courts at Bell’s Sports Centre and ten outdoor courts on the North Inch. Camping was not permitted on the North Inch so campers on the Lesser South Inch had to make their way to the North Inch each morning. A total of 38 teams took part in that first tournament.
The SOVT is now well established in the British and European volleyball calendar attracting just over 100 teams each year. We invite you to enter your teams in our unique “Scottish” volleyball experience of the year.
Over 100 teams from across Europe are again expected to assemble for the weekend from near and far with up to 40 outdoor courts on the North Inch catering for men’s, women’s and mixed divisions. It is you, the volleyball player, who makes the tournament what it is – a fun, enjoyable, competitive weekend and that’s why players and teams come back year after year.
Weekend car parking and camping are again available on the North Inch with the usual food and drinks available from the Inch Restaurant or the famed Burger Bar!
Have you and your team ever played in fancy dress? Join the growing number of teams who do – remember the team with the best fancy dress gains free entry to next year’s tournament.
Our willing band of volunteers hope you will make every effort to enjoy this year’s Scottish Open and look forward to seeing old faces and some new ones, in “fancy dress” uniform or not – so come along and join in our fun festival of volleyball which will be our 29th tournament.
