RECAP

As part of the Millennium celebrations in Belfast City, a Street Volleyball tournament was part of a series of events organized by Belfast City Council as part of the weeklong City Centre Sports New Millennium celebrations. After Cycling, Athletics and Basketball events outside Belfast City Hall, the Street Volleyball competition, the first of its kind ever in either Ireland or Britain, featured Men’s and Women’s U21 teams from Campbell College Belfast, Larne Grammar School (Co. Antrim), Craigavon Aztecs (Co. Armagh) and Enniskillen Blockbusters (Co. Fermanagh). This tournament would have been unthinkable given the security situation in the area around Belfast City Hall even just a few months previously and the event was a welcome return to normality and sport.

Craigavon Aztecs won the Women’s Tournament, defeating Campbell College Belfast on points (25-12, 23-25) and then a sweep of Enniskillen Blockbusters (25-12, 25-19). Enniskillen Blockbusters and Campbell College Belfast tied the third fixture 25-15, 15-25, with the Belfast team winning the deciding third set 31-29.
