Excellent teamwork saw Nottingham Arena Volleyball Club win the Nottingham Grand Prix for March.  With Adam Sharman making his Arena debut for the 2012/13 season, team Arena played 6 matches, winning 5 and drawing once against a strong Worksop team to finish top of the pile of the 8 competing teams.

Arena's second outing of the season also saw Mick B take over setting duties from Luke V, alongside Anna, Magda, Chris, and Patrick (playing only his second ever match!).  After a steady start, Arena got better and better as the matches went by, taking four wins before a hard-fought 17 all draw with Worksop.  Needing to win their final match against Mansfield, Arena played steady, confident volleyball, running out easy winners, and finishing as Grand Prix winners for March.

Really good setting by Magda and Mick, was supported by excellent passing by the whole team, which in turn made things easy for all the hitters, in particular Anna, Adam and Patrick.  Some extreme recoveries and a great team spirit were really good to see as the team built on last month's performance and continue to improve.

Well done everyone, and roll on April's Grand Prix!
