North vs. South is a new concept for 2023, and we can’t wait! It’s the battle of the titans, with the Southwest Series taking on the Northern Series to find out which region will come out trumps.
You enter in squads of 4 players from your region: two men and two women. We have space for 10 squads per region. We will then rank the squads from each region based on their current Northern Series/Southwest Series ranking.
The 5 highest rank Northern Series squads will play a ‘duel’ against each of the top 5 Southwest Series Squads. The bottom 5 ranked Northern series squads will play a duel against each of the bottom 5 Southwest Series squads.
A duel works as follows: the men’s pair plays against the men’s pair. Then the women’s pair plays against the women’s pair. If a squad wins both games then they win a point for their region. If it is tied at one game apiece then we play a golden set of mixed volleyball, with the participants being randomly drawn by the referee. The squad that wins the golden set wins a point for the region.
The winning region will be the one with the most points at the end of the weekend! In the event of a tie, we will randomly draw a number. The squads of this rank will play a final duel to decide the winner.
The event will take place over the weekend of 29-30th July.
This event will take place at Keele University. Each squad’s entry includes:
We have booked 85 single rooms on the university campus, just a short walk away from the courts. They all include:
(2-course buffet). This will be confirmed closer to the time. We will send out a form for you to indicate any dietary needs:
Alcohol and other drinks to be bought separately.
Entry costs £600 per squad, or £150 per player. We think this is incredible value for an entire weekend of volleyball with accommodation and half-board!
